Assyrian Church in Southeastern Turkey Granted Renovation Permit

Thanks to efforts launched by Assyrian Metropolitan Melki Ürek, the Assyrian Metropolitan Church in southeastern Adıyaman receives permission for renovations following some law amendments. Meanwhile, the Assyrian community in Turkey held its traditional mass in Adıyaman on Wednesday.

The Assyrian Metropolitan Church in southeastern Adıyaman has been granted permission to conduct renovations after many years of difficulties thanks to recent modifications to the law on foundations, according to Assyrian Metropolitan Melki Ürek.

The metropolitan was appointed to his post in 2006 and soon thereafter initiated a series of efforts to renovate the dilapidated Mor Petrus and Mor Paulus Church, which is the only church in southeastern Anatolia used by all Christian communities living in the nearby vicinity.

Ürek began the legal struggle by first applying to the Adana and then the Şanlıurfa councils of monuments.
