I want to see the church retained as history and not demolished to preserve the Coptic tradition in Australia and the significance of the first Coptic Church.

The church is of a significant value to the Australian Coptic community and therefore, any decision in regards to demolishing it must be a last resort. Not to mention that the church is worth being listed as 'a heritage site' considering that it was built in the 18th century.

I'm signing because this church is my place of baptism but foremost because it is a historical building symbolising the faith of the Coptic Community and should be treated with the same respect as other historical religious buildings within Sydney.

Thanks for adding your voice.
