Worship services with Holy Communion at St. Andrew’s United Church of Cairo are held every Friday at 10:00 a.m. Worship is held in our historic, 100-year-old building.
We are a casual, “come as you are” congregation. We strive to make it a welcoming place. We are native English speakers and people who speak many languages. We are from many places. We gather and are welcome in Jesus’ name.
Morning Worship, Fridays at 10 am
As Egypt is a predominantly Islamic country, Friday is the first day of the weekend. Therefore, since offices and schools are closed, we meet for worship on Friday morning. The worship service includes Scripture readings from the Revised Common Lectionary, as well as prayer, singing, and a sermon. Holy Communion is served every week. All baptized Christians are welcome at Christ’s table. After the service, we have fellowship with coffee and tea served in the Guild Hall.
As an interdenominational and international congregation, our worship encompasses the fullness of Christian traditions. In practice, this means we have Presbyterian, Lutheran, and Reformed features incorporated into our liturgy. And when we share the peace, we walk about and share it with everybody. The rituals of our faith connect us to God’s people through the ages. The experience of worship involves not just our minds, but our whole selves.
When you attend worship at St. Andrew’s, you take your place among the people of God gathered around Word and Sacrament. Holy Communion is at the heart of our life together. In Holy Communion the risen Christ comes among us as we hear the Word, and share the bread and cup of the Lord’s Table. We go forth to live as the body of Christ in the world, sharing the good news through word and deed.
