it's huge, with really fascinating drawings of different scenes from both the old and new testaments everywhere in the church, it's worth a quick night visit, enjoy ...

Our guide, who was most helpful, told us the Biblical truths from Genesis to Revelation - all depicted on the walls. It was a very moving trip for us as Christians and comes highly recommended.

This Church is well worth a visit, amazing stained glass windows & paintings around the ceilings. The guide inside the church takes the time to explain the meanings behind all of the paintings & windows. Knees & shoulders must be covered to enter the Church by all

The local church guide was excellent, explaining all about the interior, their religious beliefs and the history of the Religion. We were made most welcome as opposed to the Mosque, where we weren't allowed in. It wasn't too intense and well worth the visit as part og the "Tour of Sharm"

Take the bus to Delta Sharm and it is a ten minute walk from the main road.
There are guided tours each evening.
Every wall and most of the roof is covered with paintings from Bible stories.
I was told that two artists one Muslim and one Christian took two years to complete all the art work
The Church is a major tourist attraction for Egyptians..
Outside there is a pedestrian only area to enjoy where many locals hang out and enjoy a meal.
