Welcome but....

Great that you found this blog.  We used it for a while, and we may revive it.  For now, all information on St Michael's church in Heliopolis can be found on our website and on Facebook.  See you there!

Chaplain of the bishop preaches this weekend

We have the privilege of having Rev Drew Schmotzer preach in St Michael's this Friday, 4 May at 11 am.  He serves our bishop Mouneer as chaplain.  To have Rev Drew preach in our church is a minor miracle as he is the most hard working person in Egypt.  So come and admire!

Friday 27 April: The Guinea Pigs

Peter Wilson and Jennifer Pariseau will be married in our church on Friday 27 April at 4 pm.  They are confident that all things will go well - even though they are my guinea pigs... Never before did I do such thing.

Members of St Michael's are of course warmly invited.  And anyone else!

It was nice to already meet with Jennifer's parents, her brother and his wife.  May they be blessed in Cairo.  

Of course, we also have our regular church service on Friday at 11 am.  Come twice that day!

Sunday 15 April EASTER SERVICE

Our English congregations meets on Sunday 15 April at 8.30 for an Easter Worship Service. 

It was great to enjoy Maundy Thursday with its gloomy end, and to ponder the meaning of the cross this Friday, but I look forward to celebrating the resurrection of Jesus!

Here a nice picture of me washing the feet of one of our highly esteemed members - Thomas - on Maundy Thursday.

Rev Thomas Snowdon: overjoyed!

Coming Friday, 23 March, the Rev Thomas Snowdon will preach in St Michael's Church.  We look forward to this!

When we asked him to serve us with the Word, he burst out in laughter (photo, the one on the right).  His better half (photo, the one on the left) reacted more restrained.  If you want to know more, come and see for yourself - Friday 23 March, 11 am.
