We have created this online poll to create awareness and send a strong message against the demolition of Australia’s first Coptic Church at Sydenham.
We have received multiple enquiries since the recent media report announcing plans by Marrickville City Council to demolish Australia’s first Coptic Orthodox Church established in 1968.
We understand that the Coptic Orthodox Church, Diocese of Sydney and Affiliated regions has decided to no longer proceed with the salvage process after many attempts at negotiation with council citing various concerns.
Marrickville Council is now reportedly collecting stories, memories and images from the community about the church, for a public art display or plaque when the building is demolished.
