Our Histroy


The Orthodox Church in India traces its origin to 52 A.D., when St. Thomas, one of the apostles of Jesus Christ arrived and propagated the gospel and established church in the southern part of India. This church believes in preserving an unbroken continuity of spiritual life, ethical value and noble traditions through the ages. In order to keep up this belief, a handful of a variety of job prospects offered by the industrial belt in the area, got together under the banner of 'Christian Association' in the year 1976

Establishment of the Church

In the year 1977 the first Metropolitan of Delhi, Dr. Paulos Mar Gregorious appointed Rev. Fr. P.K. Thomas as the first vicar of the parish. Together they arranged for regular Orthodox worship. In 1978, the parish was formally begun and the St. Thomas Orthodox Church Society was registered. The relentless effort and enthusiasm of the parishioners, and the encouraging moral support of the priests led to the procurement of a small plot of land at Lajpat Nagar, Sahibabad for the erection of the Church building in 1981. The Church proudly stands as a fountain of blessings and spiritual inspiration reminding the parishioners of the social commitment that is to be maintained by them
