Welcome to St Thomas Indian Orthodox Church
St Thomas Indian Orthodox Church, Liverpool is a parish of the UK-Europe & Africa Diocese of the Malankara Orthodox Syrian Church of India. We inherit the untainted apostolic faith from Apostle St Thomas which has been upheld and preserved with reverence for generations.
The first seed of Orthodox Syrian Church was laid in Liverpool in October 2003 with the tireless efforts of immigrant community from Kerala. Our numbers increased over the years and in 2005 our church was declared a parish by Late H.G. Dr Thomas Mar Makarios Metropolitan.
Engaging God's world
The Malankara Orthodox Syrian Church was founded by St. Thomas, one of the twelve apostles of Jesus Christ, who came to India in A.D. 52.At least from the fourth century the Indian Church entered into a close relationship with the Persian or East Syrian Church. From the Persians, the Indians inherited East Syrian language and liturgies and gradually came to be known as Syrian Christians.
In the seventeenth century the Church came to a relationship with the Antiochene Church which again caused splits. As a result of this relationship the Church received West Syrian liturgies and practices.
