Are there any Episcopal churches in Turkey?

Question by Thomas E: Are there any Episcopal churches in Turkey?
Hello!
As far as i know ,Turkey (Anatolian land) is under the jurisdiction of the Diocese in Europe of Anglican Communion and there are Anglican churches existing in three major Turkish cities;Istanbul, Izmir and Ankara..

But apart from this,are there any Episcopal communities under the Convocation of Episcopal Churches in Europe serving in this country?

If not,are there any plans for planting Episcopal churches in Turkey?

What about Episcopalians who reside/live in Turkey due to work? Could they transfer their memberships from USA to this country and how are they supposed to worship/get involved with a church?
Too many questions i know..

I would appreciate any answers from the Episcopal clergy

Thanks a lot

Answer by God answers all questions
from the beginning of creation, ‘God made them male and female.”Therefore a man shall leave his father and mother and hold fast to his wife, and the two shall become one flesh.’ So they are no longer two but one flesh. What therefore God has joined together, let not man separate.”

Converting to the Episcopal Church?

Question by : Converting to the Episcopal Church?
I have decided to convert to the Episcopal Church, and I was wondering if you could give an outline of the process and compare it to Catholic RCIA. I am unbaptized.
I’m not Catholic, and I truly don’t see Catholicism as a delusion. I mentioned I am unbaptized, therefore, I am not a member of a church.
I am unchurched and I’m wondering what the classes are like.

Answer by FROG E
The Episcopal Church is no longer recognized as christian because of their acceptance of homosexuals in the clergy ( sin according to God) and their deviation from biblical truth.

The interior and the furniture of the 32 metres long, 14 metres wide and 15 metres high cathedral are extremely valuable. The big icon was made between 1777 and 1781 by the famous painter of Syrmia, Ösztovics Vazul. The gilded linden pulpit and the Episcopal throne with baldachin are both worth attention. The church is divided into three sections, the "women’s church", the "men’s church", situated one step lower, and the sanctuary. The nave is capped by four sections of Czech vaults, which are divided by crosspieces. The elliptical arched area in front of the sanctuary is capped by a vaulted, flattered quarter-dome. The arched choir construction projecting in the centre settles on two Doric marble pillars. According to the Orthodox rules, the service had to be attended standing, so pews are missing in the bishopric cathedral of Szentendre, with only a few leaning chairs along the walls for the wealthy and for the aristocrats.

Here lies the body of the composer Vujicsics Tihamér.

Are Episcopal churches cold?

Question by Ravens Flying Free: Are Episcopal churches cold?
I am finding the Episcopal church really reserved and the priest really cold. Also kind of elitist. It could just be this church. Has anyone else had this experience? I am shopping around for a new church b/c I feel like I can’t make connections with anyone…
