Each of the member organisations are based in the Middle East.



On Bright Monday, April 24, 2006, an annual ecumenical service was held, under the aegis of 'Eastern Hierarchs', to commemorate the suffering, death, descent and resurrection of Christ. 38 clergy eight nuns were present, including Metropolitan Archbishop Paul, and members of all levels of the clergy.

Churches represented include the Chalcedonian Orthodox Churches of Alexandria, Antioch, Cyprus, Greece, Romania; the Non-Chalcedonian Orthodox Churches of the Copts and Syriacs; and the Eastern Rite Catholic churches of the Maronites and the Melkites.
