Welcome to our church website
The Indian Orthodox Church, also known as Malankara Orthodox Syrian Church, is a Church founded by St. Thomas, one of the twelve apostles of Jesus Christ, who came to India in A.D. 52. St. Gregorios Church,London is the first parish church of the Malankara Orthodox Syrian Church in the United Kingdom and it is the mother church of all other parishes and congregations in the United Kingdom and Republic of Ireland. Our mission is to the people of Indian origin in the British Isles, and though we are completely Orthodox in our faith and practice, we remain Indian in our ethos and in our appreciation of the Orthodox heritage. The Malankara Orthodox Church, as part of the Oriental Orthodox family of Churches, is in communion with the Coptic Orthodox Church, the Armenian Apostolic Church, the Syrian Orthodox Church, the Ethiopian Orthodox Church and the Eritrean Orthodox Church.But we also warmly welcome all who wish to worship and learn with us, whatever their culture.

When we celebrate the great feast of Nativity, we recall the incarnation of God as a human being. Jesus’ arrival as a vulnerable baby was a marriage between divinity and humanity, a day when “the two became one.” On the first Christmas, Christ’s sanctifying presence built a bridge between a sinful world and a holy God, opening the door for you and me to become part of His family.
