Thought for the day
"Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you. For everyone who asks receives; he who seeks finds; and to him who knocks, the door will be opened."
- Matthew 7:7-8
During the year 1956, a small group of families were worshiping in the rented house at 8th cross, Malleswaram under Hudson Memorial Church guidance. Rev V. Joshaya was the first presbyter in-charge appointed by the Diocese.
As families started growing, necessity for a own place for worship was thought off and a corner site 100' x 100' with a house consisting of 9 rooms was purchased in the year 1971.
During 1975 the existing rooms were demolished and made a big hall suitable for worship.
On 16.10.1977 the Church was named as GRACE CHURCH by the then Bishop Rt. Rev. K.E. Gill.
