Church of South India to Open in Abu Dhabi Soon

Church of South India (CSI) Parish Abu Dhabi, a first in the Capital, will be open in the coming months next to the UAE’s first traditional Hindu temple. The land was gifted by President His Highness Sheikh Mohamed bin Zayed Al Nahyan.

“Now, the church building is ready. We are grateful to the leaders. We congratulate Sheikh Mohamed for becoming the UAE President,” Vicar Lalji M. Philip said. “We are awaiting infrastructure facilities like electricity, water and road connection. We hope to receive it soon.”

The church has 5,000 members overall in the country.

The church building will have a main prayer area, multi-purpose hall, choir room, children room, audio-visual room, vicar’s office and balcony with seats. There will be further expansion done in future during the second phase.

Vicar Jiju Joseph from Marthoma Church Abu Dhabi participated in the interfaith gathering.
