Diocese of Cyprus & The Gulf


Whoever you are, whether part of the diocese already, visitor, friend, or enquirer, I warmly welcome you to the Diocese of Cyprus and the Gulf.

We serve the people of around ten political jurisdictions - depending on how you count them - across a huge area.  Everywhere our doors and our worship are open to all.  We're of many nationalities.  Some of us are citizens of the land in which we live but most of us are expatriate migrants.  We're aware that our region, the Middle East and Eastern Mediterranean, is in the spotlight of world attention.  What happens here has global implications.  With our strong ministry of presence we try, alongside other Christian traditions, to shine a bright light especially in times of unrest and violent conflict.  With people of goodwill across faiths, we work and pray for peace with justice.

In the Diocese of Cyprus and the Gulf we see the features on our landscape for what they are:  God-given opportunities and blessings.

In Christ.

Bishop Michael
