Home The Diocese An Overview

The Diocese of UK-Europe and Africa

An Overview

As per the re-bifurcation of geographical area in 2009, the Diocese of UK-Europe and Africa was formed to include all parishes, congregations and spiritual organisations of the Malankara (INDIAN) Orthodox Syrian Church within the geographical extents of the continents of Europe and Africa.

Malankara Matropolitan and Catholicos of the East HH Moran Mar Baselios Marthoma Paulose II appointed HG Dr. Mathews Mar Thimothios as the first Diocesan Metropolitan of the newly formed diocese, who assumed office in May 2009. Earlier, these parishes were under the jurisdictional purview of the LL Thomas Mar Makarios of the erstwhile Diocese of Canada, Uk and Europe.

The Diocese of UK-Europe and Africa is one of the 30 dioceses of the Malankara Orthodox Syrian Church founded by the Apostle St. Thomas, which has its headquarters at Devalokam, Kottayam, Kerala, India. It has its administration headquarters at Malankara House, 35 Hennman Clse, Swindon, SN254ZW, UK. There is also a satelite office based at Menorah Orthodox Center, Venmony P.O., Chengannur, Kerala, India - 689509.

There are currently 35 parishes in 10 countries over the 2 continents with several more congregations at many places.
