Lausanne Orthodox Initiative Announces 2015 Consultation Dates

LOI

Next Lausanne Orthodox-Evangelical meeting will take place on 1-4 September in Helsinki, Finland

The LOI Steering Committee is pleased to be able to announce that its 2015 Consultation will be held in Finland at the invitation of the Orthodox Church of Finland and with the warm support of the Evangelical Alliance. Finland has the rare distinction of having two ‘state Churches’, Lutheran and Orthodox, and makes an ideal setting for our third LOI consultation.

We will be meeting from lunchtime on Tuesday 1 September until the afternoon of Friday 4 September 2014 at the Sofia Cultural Centre close to Helsinki (see map).  The Sofia Cultural Centre is a comfortable and convenient venue for the 60-70 participants who are expected to gather for next year’s consultation which will build on the work done at St. Vlash, in Albania, in 2013 and 2014.

His Eminence Metropolitan Ambrosius (Orthodox Church of Finland) expresses his warm welcome  to Finland and an expectation that this consultation will be blessed by God. Participation will be by invitation only but those wishing to attend are invited to write to markoxbrow@aol.com (the LOI facilitator) to express their interest.  Official invitations will be sent out in late January 2015 immediately after the next meeting of the LOI Steering Committee.
