Bishop of the Diocese: The Right Revd. Michael Lewis
The Diocese of Cyprus and the Gulf covers a wide and diverse region, serving the people of around ten political jurisdictions across a huge area, offering a warm welcome to all they represent and serve. Those serving in the Diocese represent many nationalities, some are citizens of the land in which they live but most are expatriate migrants.
Established in 1976, the Anglican Diocese of Cyprus and the Gulf is one of the four dioceses that make up the Province of Jerusalem and the Middle East. In 1984 the diocese established companion links with the Diocese of Exeter in England and in 2005 with the Diocese of Thika in Kenya.
In addition to its many parishes, the diocese is also host to a substantial and growing Mission to Seafarers presence as well as a thriving Retreats Ministry.
