JAFFNA DIOCESE OF THE CHURCH OF SOUTH INDIA

“The Church of South India was established on 27 September 1947”

The Church of South India was established on 27 September 1947 as a union of the South India Provincial Synod of Methodist Church, the South India United Church (Congregational, Presbyterian and Reformed) and the southern dioceses of the Church of India, Pakistan, Burma and Sri Lanka (Anglican). The Jaffna Diocese of the Church of South India (JDCSI) was one of the 22 dioceses of the new church. Sabapathy Kulendran was enthroned as the first Bishop of Jaffna on 10 October 1947.

The Jaffna Diocese of the Church of South India recognizes the participation of the people at all levels of Church government, but, as members of the Body of Christ and servants of the Servant Lord, we remind ourselves that power and authority should be considered a means of service.
