Pastor’s Welcome

Dear visitor,

Welcome to Heliopolis Community Church where the body of Christ from around the world comes together to worship our living Savior.  Whether you are just vacationing in Egypt or moving here to stay, we invite you to come to worship with us.

HCC is an international and interdenominational church.  On any given Friday there may be 20 to 25 different nationalities represented in our service. 

Our goal is to make everyone feel comfortable as they come into God’s presence to worship.  Every time we meet, it reminds us of Revelation 7:9 which says that there were people…  “from every nation, tribe, people and language, standing before the throne and in front of the Lamb.”  We truly lay aside all our differences and focus on what we have in common, the Lord Jesus Christ as our Savior.

Being in the crossroads of the Middle East, we are constantly welcoming newcomers, and saying good-bye to others. However long your stay is, we invite you to consider making HCC your church home in Egypt.

Our worship service starts at 9am on Friday mornings. (Note that during these times of COVID, we are observing the health protocols as described by the government along with some limited capacity.) Plan to stay a little extra time after the service, if you would like, and “hang out” in the garden for informal fellowship to get to know people of our church. We also have home groups which meet at various times during the week in different homes.

We trust that your time here in Egypt will be a blessing to each of you. Please do not hesitate to reach out to us, we’d love to have you as part of our family!

Home Update

Heliopolis Community Church is thanking God for providing the good gift of a new pastoral couple, Pastor Mark and Diane Henzler. They were willing to come to pastor our church even in the midst of COVID.

Even though things are constantly changing around us, we are so thankful that our Good Shepherd, Jesus, is never changing. He promised to always be with us – always.

As a community church, we are blessed with many Bible based preachers, teachers and worship leaders. And the many ministries at HCC are continuing as our weekly worship services reflect.

All who are seeking to worship the Lord Jesus as their Savior (in the English language) are welcome. We are in the transitional phase of meeting with some in-person at St. Michael’s Church and others with Zoom. As we follow the guidelines laid out by the Egyptian Government, we hope to be able to progress with more people meeting together.

      HCC meets at St. Michael’s Church in Korba, Heliopolis. Egypt continues to experience COVID with the 3rd wave winding down, and we are grateful to be able to meet in-person with limited attendance and precautions in place. Although some are able to meet in the church building, others continue following the service via Zoom.
    You are welcome to join the Zoom service which will be available live at 9am local Egyptian time. If you are interested in joining us, please email [email protected] for details.
