The Friends of the Diocese in Europe
14 Tufton Street
London,   SW1P 3QZ

E: dioceseineuropefriends@gmail.com

The Friends are people who support the Diocese in Europe and share in its life and work.


By their interest

  • in discovering something of its history and its work
  • in visiting its chaplaincies whenever possible
  • in talking about it to others and introducing new Friends
  • in coming to the annual reunion and other activities
  • in reading The European Anglican

By their prayers

God bless our Diocese
Inspire its worship
Sanctify its people and
Make each of its churches and chaplaincies
A home for all who need or seek You. Amen

By their gifts

Friends make regular donations (£25 annually is suggested, but many pay rather more).

The proceeds are used to support a wide range of diocesan projects for which funds are short or are not available from other sources.


In return

  • Friends receive a regular mailing from the Diocesan Office, including The European Anglican four times a year, the Annual Review and other information as it becomes available.
  • There is an annual reunion, usually in London, consisting of a service followed by a reception: this is an opportunity for the Friends to meet each other, the Bishops and other clergy and lay people from around the Diocese and the Diocesan staff.
