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 bishops of the British Isles (the United Kingdom of England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland, as well as Ireland), representing multiple jurisdictions. 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 Inter-Orthodox Episcopal committee in the British Isles.
