Supporting Christian Mission Overseas

St Matthew's has for many years supported Christian Mission within the Diocese of Egypt with North Africa and the Horn of Africa. The Diocese lies within the worldwide Anglican Communion Province of Jerusalem and the Middle East, shown here with its various dioceses in different colours. The Province is the most extensive and diverse in the entire Anglican Communion.

Many of the clergy in the Diocese are trained by the Alexandria School of Theology, located near the Mediterranean coast in the north of Egypt. The picture below shows participants at a residential conference in February 2013.
