Mar Thoma Syrian Church Itarsi

We are called to create and find new avenues for the establishment of theKingdomofGod. Itarsi Marthoma mission is an attempt to respond to this call with an action oriented attitude. It came out of the ardent desire of a small Christian community in Itarsi to proclaim "Good news" to the community around. The vision of transformation in the context of poverty, illiteracy, unemployment, discrimination and low standard of living prompted Itarsi mission to initiate the campaign of building a transformed society,.

Itarsi Mar Thoma Mission Centre is situated at Jaiprakash Nagar, Near Tehsil Office, Old Itarsi on the side of Itarsi-Nagpur road, 3 Km away from Itarsi Railway Junction, being the centre place of India, it has a great significance. It is one of the North Indian mission fields of Delhi Diocese. The mission field is located among the slum dwellers at Jaiparakash Nagar. The majority of population consists of scheduled caste, scheduled tribe and other backward communities. Being a mission oriented church, the then Mumbai-Delhi diocese under the great guidance of Rt. Rev. Dr. Issac Mar Phelexinos Episcopa, started the Mission field in 1997 on the request of Itarsi Mar Thoma Church. This mission centre is flourishing under the noble guidance of Rt. Rev. Dr. Gregorios Mar Stephanos Episcopa.
