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. 

All Saints Cathedral (Cairo) is the spiritual centre for over 100 congregations throughout the Diocese, including, St. Mark’s Pro-Cathedral (Alexandria), Christ the King (Ras el Soda, Alexandria), All Saints (Stanley Bay, Alexandria), St. John the Baptist (Maadi), St. Michael and All Angels (Heliopolis), Jesus Light of the World (Old Cairo), Church for the Deaf (Old Cairo), Church of the Good Shepherd (Giza), St Mark’s (Menouf), Church of our Saviour (Suez), Church of the Epiphany (Port Said), Ezbit el Nakhl Church (Cairo), Christ the King Anglican Church (Tripoli), St George’s (Tunis), Holy Trinity (Algiers), St George’s (Asmara), St Matthew’s (Addis Ababa), St Luke’s (Gambella) and over 50 congregations throughout Gambella, Ethiopia.

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:

  1. to reach the unreached with the Gospel of Christ

  2. to grow Christ’s church by making disciples and equipping leaders

  3. to serve our neighbours in Christ's name

  4. to work for unity among all Christians

  5. to dialogue with other faith communities. 

Support from The Jerusalem and Middle East Church Association (JMECA) to the Diocese in recent years has been directed to helping with mission work, ordination training for Egyptian candidates and medical outreach.
