Historically this work has been focused on supporting the Episcopal Church in Iran through the work of the bishop. but because many people from Iran have found their way to the UK, it was clear that we should be offering spiritual and pastoral support to those from Iran who are seeking help from the Anglican church here.
For that purpose it was decided to set up a Persian Anglican ministry website specifically to meet these needs in two way:,
firstly, by supporting those who are already in the UK in their normal family life, particularly where they have become part of Church of England congregations and seeking support from the Church of England.
secondly, by supporting those who have come as refugees or are seeking asylum and may need wisdom, advice and pastoral care from local Anglican vicars or chaplaincies in the workplace..
We hope through the website to deliver resources to people who wish to join with us in this ministry in offering pastoral care to Iranians in the UK.
you will find on this website the following resources:
- Bishop Dehqani – Tafti’s Books
- Persian Liturgy
- prayer wall
The work is overseen by a small management committee mainly from the Persian Christians.
* The website is currently being developed. We welcome suggestions for further content – email us at:
