One of the most unusual places of worship in Brighton and Hove , and one of only a handful of Coptic churches in the UK. Copts are descendants of ancient Egyptians who adopted Christianity in the first century and refused to convert to Islam after the Arab conquest. The head of the Coptic Church, Shenonda III, the 117th Pope of Alexandria, consecrated the church in 1994.
