CNI Wesleyan Church, Kolkata, India



Darley Dale Methodist Church is in the process of forming a partnership with the CNI Wesleyan Church in Kolkata.

The Wesleyan Church in Kolkata was originally the Wesleyan Methodist Church and was opened in 1866 as a place of worship both for civilians and for the members of the military garrison.  In 1970 the Wesleyan Methodist Church joined the Church of North India (CNI).  At present, the Church has a service of worship at 9.30am every Sunday morning, with Holy Communion services being on the first and third Sundays of each month.  The Women’s fellowship meets every first Sunday of the month and there are also visits to care homes for both children and elderly people to distribute food items and clothes.

The ministers of Darley Dale Methodist Church and CNI Wesleyan Church in Kolkata have been working on forming a partnership that might involve keeping in regular touch through emails, newsletters or social media to share and exchange news, views, prayer requests, sermon / Bible study topics / points and so on. People have been found in both of our congregations to help to develop the partnership.

On Sunday, the 19th October, 2014 the Rev. Abir Adhikari, Presbyter-in-Charge, led the Congregation in singing the opening hymn, "How Great Thou Art" on the occasion of 148th Anniversary of the church.  Join in the joyful singing at the church by turning on your computer's speakers and by clicking on this link.
