The annual Archdeacon’s Visitation and Gathering was held in St. Paul’s Cathedral, Nicosia on Saturday 20th May 2017.
Members of the several parishes of the Archdeaconry in Cyprus met together to hear the Archdeacon in Cyprus, the Revd Dr John Holdsworth, give his “state of the union” address and to commission Wardens and Council members following their elections at recent AGMs in the parishes.

Readers and clergy also reaffirmed their committments in prayer to their ministry within the Diocese.
Following last year’s example parishes were asked to bring a cake representing the diversity of members of their congregations and activities.
Below is the wonderful cake for St. Andrew’s made by the extremely gifted Charlie Inskip, followed by a picture of all of the cakes on the altar of the cathedral before their blessing (and subsequent demolishing by those present after the service!)
