38, 26th of July Street, Cairo

Cairo’s traffic is legendary. Yet on Friday mornings you can drive to St. Andrew’s United Church of Cairo from anywhere in the city in 15 minutes or less. Part of the gift of St. Andrew’s is that it brings people from all over the city together each week for worship.

Getting to St. Andrew’s:
