Bangalore East Mar Thoma Church (BEMTC) became the third Mar Thoma parish in Bangalore (after Bangalore and Jalahalli). It was formed with members of the erstwhile Bangalore East Prayer Group of the Bangalore Mar Thoma Church, Primrose Road and given the status of a full-fledged parish on 28 March 1980.
We are part of the wider fellowship of the Malankara Mar Thoma Syrian Church, with its headquarters in Tiruvalla, headed by His Grace Rt. Rev. Dr. Joseph Mar Thoma Metropolitan and a Synod of nine other Bishops.
The parish today has nearly 400 primary members and is divided into seven prayer groups.
