Thanks to the support and blessing of H.E. Metropolitan Seraphim, the planned Coptic Language Summer School has been organised and will take place in September. Although events like this are not evangelistic, and will involve the particpation of only a relatively small number of students, the fact that it is taking place at one of the major universities in London, and is being widely advertised, will help to promote an awareness of the British Orthodox Church, which is sponsoring the event.
The student numbers are limited to approximately 10, and places are already filling up.
The details are as follows:
