London Parish of Malankara (Indian) Orthodox Syrian Church-

A Church of Holy Scripture  And Sacred Tradition

Scripture contains those truths taught by Christ to the Apostles and later put into writing. Apostolic Tradition represents those truths, but not committed to writing, and the perspective of the ancient magi who were consecrated Bishops in the Church by St. Thomas, the Great Apostle of the East.

Worship at St. Andrew -by-the- Wardrobe Church, Queen Victoria Street, London, EC4. Christopher Wren (1685-95) rebuilt this beautiful church, following the great fire of London. William Shakespeare used to worship in this church, very close to St.Paul's Cathedral. Again after the bombs in 1940, Marshall Sisson restored it to the architectural design, is owned by Church of England. Late Rev. Fr. K. A. George, by his relentless effort secured this church for our free use from the generous Lord bishop of London. H.H.Baselios Marthoma Mathews I, canonically sanctified the church and celebrated Holy Qurbana in July 1979.

Every Sunday  we have

   Holy Eucharist (Qurbana) 10 a.m

 (in English 1st & 3rd Sunday, in Malayalam 2nd, 4th,5th Sundays & special feast days)

 The celebration of Holy Liturgy-the sacrament of sacraments-is a unique event in the life of the Orthodox Church. The liturgy is the time of celebration in which the faithful partake in the great events of the life of our Lord along with the company of great and many Saints. The liturgy is the time to receive blessing, peace, grace and to develop the spirit of sharing with others.  The role of the congregation in the Holy Eucharist of the Malankara Orthodox Church is so vital, that we can say that, the whole church celebrates the Holy Eucharist under the leadership of the priest or bishop. According to the teachings of the church, we cannot have live without the Holy Eucharist. "Jesus said to them; I am telling you the truth; if you do not eat the flesh of the Son of Man and drink his blood, you will not have life in yourselves. Whoever eats my flesh and drinks my blood has eternal life, and I will raise him to life on the last day."(John 6:53-54)The Eucharist worship is one through which the worshipper attains deeper and richer state of experiencing Christ than what is obtained through any other form of worship.
