About us

DAIR AL-ADHRA, THE CHURCH OF THE HOLY VIRGIN (1)The Coptic Orthodox Church worships God in continuity with the earliest Church, and as such is one of the oldest Churches.

It is a Church of balance: between the mystical and the real; between spirituality and theology; between worship and service of humanity.

Everything is in balance, otherwise known as “right worship” (Orthodox).
It is not a denomination, but rather pre-denominational. It is not a religion but rather a life with God in Christ.

The Orthodox Church worships God in “spirit and truth” and dynamically incarnates that truth in every age – empowering all people from all walks of life to love God, others, and themselves.
