President Bishop and Bishop of Egypt: The Right Revd. Samy Fawzy

The Episcopal / Anglican  Province of Alexandria, formerly a diocese within the Province of Jerusalem and the Middle East, in the worldwide Anglican Communion extends over ten countries: Mauritania, Algeria, Tunisia, Libya, Chad, Egypt, Ethiopia, Eritrea, Somalia and Djibouti. The Province is structured into four dioceses:

  • Diocese of Egypt
  • Diocese of North Africa
  • Diocese of the Horn of Africa
  • Diocese of Gambella

There are over 100 congregations throughout the Province, with All Saints Cathedral, Cairo being the spiritual centre. The Dioceses support 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 of Egypt 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 five goals of the Province 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.

The Province of Alexandria 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 benefitted from it would convert from Islam to Christianity
