The Episcopal / Anglican Diocese of Egypt with North Africa and the Horn of Africa, a diocese within the Province of Jerusalem and the Middle East in the worldwide Anglican Communion, extends over eight countries including Algeria, Tunisia, Libya, Egypt, Ethiopia, Eritrea, Somalia and Djibouti.
There are over 100 congregations throughout the Diocese, with All Saints Cathedral, Cairo being the spiritual centre. The Diocese supports over 30 institutions which include hospitals, clinics, nurseries, schools, a theological seminary, micro-enterprise ventures, vocational training programs, as well as institutions for refugees, the deaf and the disabled.
Since its beginning in 1839, the Diocese has been committed to serve others as Jesus did. We are committed to serving all people holistically, regardless of their religion or social status. Numerically we are small, but in this strategic part of the world, we have a great opportunity and responsibility to be ambassadors of our Lord Jesus, demonstrating in “Word and deed” what our faith means to us.
The Diocese supports more than 30 institutions which include hospitals, clinics, nurseries, schools, a theological seminary, micro-enterprise ventures, vocational training programs, as well as institutions for the deaf and the disabled.
The five goals of the Diocese are:
- to reach the unreached with the Gospel of Christ
- to grow Christ’s church by making disciples and equipping leaders
- to serve our neighbours in Christ's name
- to work for unity among all Christians
- to dialogue with other faith communities.
Please pray for the Christians in the Diocese of Egypt and the Bishop. To support them please
The Diocese of Egypt has flourished by the Grace of God and through the church’s mission in serving the community in word and deed; loving one’s neighbour has been a key factor.
There has been a strong theme of service in Anglican mission in Egypt right up to the present day. The love of God was shone through the provision of health care and education in Anglican hospitals and schools. This was done without necessarily any expectation that those who beneited from it would convert from Islam to Christianity
