The autocephalous and autonomous Orthodox churches are those churches which have self-government.

There is not currently unanimous agreement on which churches are autoephalous or autonomous. There is, however, an order which is followed in international Inter-Orthodox gatherings, which is included here first. There is an expanded order which is recognized by some churches, most notably the Church of Russia and its dependencies and historical daughter churches. Despite the disagreement on which churches have autocephalous or autonomous status, all these churches maintain full communion with one another.
