The Advent Christian Conference of India’s church at Perumbakkam started in 1930 with just a few families. To cope with growth in membership a new church building was built in 1982 and was further extended in 1998.
Under the recent leadership of Rev M G Bakthasingh, who is also Treasurer of the Advent Christian Conference of India, church membership has grown to 200 families – about 800 believers.
Mission Manager Immanuel represented the Mission at the dedication of a new, much larger church building on 18 December 2011.
Thank the Lord for the faith and foresight of the early missionaries in purchasing large plots of land here at Perumbakkam and in many other what were then small villages surrounding the city of Madras (now Chennai) and praise the Lord for this large congregation which now bears witness to the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
Pray for Rev Bakthasingh, his assistant Pastor Chelliah Jesudasan and the officers and members of the church as they reach out into their community.
