The Indian Orthodox Church is also known as Malankara Orthodox Syrian Church, a Church founded by St. Thomas, one of the twelve apostles of Jesus Christ, who came to India in A.D. 52. St. Gregorios Church London is the first parish church of the Malankara Orthodox Syrian Church in the United Kingdom. and it is the mother church of all other parishes and congregations in the United Kingdom and Republic of Ireland. Our mission is to the people of Indian origin in the British Isles, and though we are completely Orthodox in our faith and practice, we remain Indian in our ethos and in our appreciation of the Orthodox heritage. The Malanakara Orthodox Church, as part of the Oriental Orthodox family of Churches, is in communion with the Coptic Orthodox Church, the Armenian Apostolic Church, the Syrian Orthodox Church, the Ethiopian Orthodox Church, the Eritrean Orthodox Church.But we also warmly welcome all who wish to worship and learn with us, whatever their culture.

- There will be regular sunday services at both St.Andrew-By-The-Wardrobe church, Blackfriars and St.Gregorios church, Brockley on Sunday 19 May 2013
Greetings to you in the name of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ !
May we join as the children of the Malankara Orthodox Church , to pray and shed tears over the departing of our beloved Ivanios Thirumeni who has taken to Heavenly Abode this morning. Thirumeni had been to our community in his pre- bishopric years and visited our parish as bishop more than once. He was very loving, truly spiritual and had lead an exemplary ascetic life. He had been to terminal illness once and God brought him back to life. Lord healed him to give him back to the church as a real blessing. We thank God for giving a spiritual father like him to lead His people.
There will be special prayer for Thirumeni on this Sunday . May God accept his soul and comfort him. Let his prayer be a shelter for us. -13.04.2013 Rev. Fr. Thomas P John
