A Community Festival Day for all the family will be held at The Coptic Orthodox Church Centre in Stevenage on Saturday 4 August 2012.

On Saturday 4 August, The Coptic Orthodox Church Centre in the UK will invite the local community to explore their local cathedral. The Mayor of Stevenage will also be in attendance. The event is free and open to every member of the community, and promises to be a great day out for all the family.

His Grace Bishop Angaelos, General Bishop of The Coptic Orthodox Church in the United Kingdom said:

“We are looking forward to opening our doors to the whole community as we celebrate this wonderful year in the United Kingdom, in keeping with the spirit of Her Majesty the Queen’s Jubilee and the hosting of the Olympics. We pray for a wonderful day where the whole family can come together to celebrate Stevenage as one community.”

There will be live coverage of the Olympic Games, with activities for children including a bouncy castle, football, face painting as well as a mini-Olympic sports competition. Tours of St. George Cathedral will take place on the hour, giving an insight into the background and heritage of the Coptic Orthodox Church.
