The Fellowship also supports the Women’s Ministries Initiative led by Dr Elena Narinskaya, affiliated with the Orthodox Fellowship of St. John the Baptist. It is a forum to explore the roles of men, women and the laity within the Orthodox Church.
- Networking: building bridges and joint initiatives with other Orthodox and non-Orthodox organisations;
- Educating: organising conferences, study days and facilitating discussions in between;
- Communicating: in order to understand each other and learn to accept and respect every point of view, even if it is different from one’s own
