Nordic Easter Lunch

Many thanks to The Norwegian Church Abroad for welcoming us to their fabulous Nordic Easter lunch today. We loved the food – thank you, Birgitta! – the stories, the singing and being in such wonderful company.
We look forward to our sunrise service early tomorrow, followed by our joint Easter Communion Service at 10.30, when Pastor Jon Albert Ihiebaek will preach.

A very big THANK YOU to everyone who took part in our Lent Lunches. The €400 raised for the Ras Morbat Clinic in Yemen was handed over to the Diocese yesterday and was very gratefully received.

Lent Lunch – March 17th

Donations will go to the Ras Morbat Clinic in Yemen. Please support this valuable work.

Ramazan Bayramınız

A blessed month of Ramadan to all our Muslim friends and neighbours and to Muslims everywhere.
We remember especially those in Gaza. We pray that the aid coming by ship from Cyprus will soon reach them and help to ease their terrible suffering.

Cyprus Clergy meet at The Hermitage

The quarterly meeting of the Anglican Clergy in Cyprus was held at The Hermitage this morning. It was a pleasure to welcome to Kyrenia clergy from Paphos, Larnaca, Derynia and Nicosia.

Enthronement of our new Bishop

The Consecration and Enthronement of Bishop Elect Sean Semple as the Sixth Bishop of the Diocese of Cyprus and the Gulf will take place at St Christopher’s Cathedral, Bahrain on Friday 24 May at 6 pm.

The Enthronement of the new Bishop in St Paul’s Cathedral in Nicosia will take place on Saturday 22 June at 5 pm.

Both events will be followed by receptions. Anyone wishing to attend either, or both events, would be most welcome.

Lent Lunches for Ras Morbat Eye Clinic

Lent lunches will be served in the church hall on Sunday 3rd and 17th March after the morning service. The lunch will consist of home-made soup, fresh bread and hummus, plus a cup of tea or coffee.

There is no charge but Donations (200/300 TL?) will be appreciated. Proceeds will go to the Ras Morbat Clinic, Aden.

Ras Morbat Clinic still operates, despite the civil war in Yemen, specialising in eye care and corrective procedures. It also runs a vaccination programme for children and staff go out to remote areas including Somali refugee camps.

Ras Morbat clinic is financed by donation via our Diocese and run entirely by skilled and dedicated Yemini staff. Treatment costs are kept low and the clinic has a very good reputation for its work.

The situation has become much harder for the clinic in recent weeks. Power cuts last 8 hours and there is usually only 2 hours of electricity a day. Mansoor, the director, travels long distances to find enough diesel to power the generator to keep the clinic operating.

Your support for Ras Morbat’s vital work this Lent will be greatly appreciated.
