Belfast Mar Thoma Congregation is a close knit group of Mar Thomites in and around Northern Ireland,UK. Belfast MTC is a part of the North America and Europe Diocese.
n Belfast there were very few members of the MarThoma church prior to the year 2000 and worship services were conducted few times by visiting Bishops & priests due to the efforts and intersts of the then members of the church who were living here . Members of all denominations from the Malankara (Kerala ) used to join for the worship . From year 2002 large number of Indian doctors and nurses came to UK and for higher training and jobs and many were from Kerala state which is the Malabar coast of South India.Thus members of the church gathered for regular prayer meeting & worship in Malayalam, the language of Kerala, India, and that led to the formation of a congregation of the MarThoma church .MarThoma congregational regular worship was started in Belfast, capital city Northern Ireland on 10th April 2005 at 62,Finaghy Road South,Belfast at the residence of Dr.Binu Mathew K.Thomas under the leadership of Rev.Thomas P.Koshy ,Vicar,St.James MarThoma Church London and the first official Episcopal Visit and General body meeting and appointment of office bearers were done on 27th January 2006 in the presence of the Diocesan Episcopa, Mar Coorilos Euyakim.
