The Evangelical Church of Egypt (a Protestant church) has approximately 250,000 members in Egypt. The Episcopal Church in Jerusalem and the Middle East (a member of the Anglican Communion) has between 10,000 and 15,000 members in Egypt[citation needed]. Religious freedom of Egyptian Christians is hampered by government authorities[citation needed]. There are about 50,000 Egyptians related to American Presbyterian missions and about 75,000 members of the Evangelical Church in Egypt, Synod of the Nile[citation needed]. Protestants in Egypt are allowed to build churches[citation needed]. Annual growth of the Protestants is about 1.3%, which is lower than the growth of the Muslims[citation needed]. There exists a Coptic Evangelical Organization for Social Services.
