However, they passed through a period of violence, extremism, and discrimination, and this period showed The importance of building the Egyptian person and restoring the values that prevailed in Egypt in the past, and the Church saw that it is her duty as a national institution to contribute as much as it can to the return of beautiful Egypt by strengthening harmony among the people’s spectra and acceptance and respect for the other, as the Church found that arts, literature, and music are the languages that combine between Peoples of different sects, it is a language that unites and does not divide, hence the idea of establishing Gusour Cultural Center in the service building attached to All Saints Cathedral to use arts, literature, and music to build bridges between members of society.
The center’s activities are represented in artistic performances such as music, theater, musical theatre, film shows, storytelling shows, and children’s shows.
