Autonomy (literally, "self-ruled") is the status of a church within the Orthodox Church whose primatial bishop is confirmed by one of the autocephalous Orthodox Churches. In all other respects, an autonomous church is entirely self-governing. There are currently six autonomous churches within the Orthodox Church: the Church of Sinai, the Church of Finland, the Church of Japan, the Church of Ukraine, the Church of Estonia, and the Church of China.
