217 bytes added, 02:05, January 2, 2012
The '''Episcopal Assembly of the British Isles'''(or the '''Pan-Orthodox Assembly of Bishops with Churches in the British Isles'''), founded in 2010, consists of all the active Orthodox [[bishop]]s of the British Isles (the United Kingdom of England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland, as well as Ireland), representing multiple [[jurisdiction]]s. It is not, properly speaking, a [[synod]]. The Episcopal Assembly of the British Isles is one of several such bodies around the world which operate in the so-called "[[diaspora]]."
Until the formation of the Assembly on June 21, 2010, there had not previously been any panInter-Orthodox Episcopal committee in the British Isles.
