Welcome to Sinai Mar Thoma Church
Members of the Mar Thoma community living in north London democratically decided to form a new parish with the guidance of the Diocesan Episcopa, Rt. Revd Dr. Geevarghese Mar Theodosius. When they fulfilled the necessary requirement according to the constitution of the Mar Thoma Church, Metropolitan, The Most Revd Dr. Joseph Mar Thoma, and the Episcopal Synod granted permission for the ‘Sinai Mar Thoma Church, North London.’ The name given to this parish by our Metropolitan is a constant reminder to us that we are a diaspora community, a journeying people, and a people on pilgrimage. The parish became a reality on 15th April 2010 and the Most Revd Dr. Joseph Mar Thoma conducted a thanksgiving and dedication service on 18th April 2010. Rev. Dr. Thomas Philip has been appointed as the vicar of this parish in Harrow from 1st May 2013.
Dearly beloved in Christ, As per the Kalpana of our Metropolitan, I joined this parish in May at the time of the celebration of the Jubilee year of the Diocese of North America & Europe. The Jubilee celebration should be a time to trace and reaffirm our journey of faith and be an occasion of thanksgiving, reflection and rededication. A journey of trust with the guidance of the Holy Spirit began with the arrival of our early fathers who set the roots in this part of the world. Though the challenges were many, they established worshipping communities wherever they could because of their unfailing trust in their God, church and community.
