The Church of Denmark today became a full member of the Porvoo Communion when representatives of the church signed the Porvoo Agreement in Copenhagen Cathedral.

This historic occasion was celebrated at a service in Copenhagen Cathedral where representatives of ten Porvoo churches participated along with the congregation of the cathedral and many guests from the Anglican congregation in Copenhagen.

On the eve of the signing the delegation of guests participated in evensong in the Anglican church of St. Albans and enjoyed the hospitality of that congregation.
