Tabore Mar Thoma Church, Manchester, U.K. is one of the newer parishes formed in 2007 in England under the Diocese of North America and Europe of the Mar Thoma Church. Though the church is situated in the city of Manchester, it provides pastoral care to its members who live all across the north-west region of England which include towns like Manchester, Stockport, Ashton-u-Lyne, Oldham, Bolton, Wigan, Leigh, Blackburn, Preston, Sheffield, Stoke-on-Trent, Hull, Scarborough and Grimsby.
Apart from regular worship services on Sundays, the Sunday School classes are held every Sunday. In these classes children between the age of 4 to 16 years get a first hand chance to learn and explore the word of God.
Cottage prayer meetings are held on Saturdays in the Greater Manchester area, once every fortnight in the Blackburn and once a month in Stoke-on-Trent, Sheffield and Preston areas of the prayer group. These prayer meetings provide us with an opportunity to dedicate some time for bible study and intercessory prayers.
As an ongoing endeavour to reach out to our members in far stretched areas of North West England, we celebrate Holy Communion Services in areas outside Greater Manchester through the Outreach Service programme.
The spiritually youthful Tabore Mar Thoma Church invites every Christian believer in the North West region of England to come and share the fellowship with our Lord and Saviour.
Dearly beloved in Christ,
Greetings to you,
This is the last letter of me to you in this year. We are bidding fare well to one more year of our life. The incidents of the past year made us aware of our utter helplessness, dispassionate state and failures as human beings. As we look towards the New Year, our minds are filled with not only hopes and expectations, but also fears and anxieties. I remember one bible verse, psalms 34;5 ‘ The oppressed look to him and he answers; he saves them from all their troubles’. We can firmly say that God was good to us. He is mighty and wonderful. Those who trust in God, He will deliver them from the crisis. We are under the control love and protection of that Divine power which has the entire Universe under it. It is within us. We abide in it.
Our Choir is an integral part of our worship service as we actively participate in both Malayalam and English worship services.
Our Sunday school is open to children from 3 to 17 years of age. Our children sing and praise God almighty during their class time.
Our Sevika Sangham members actively involve in all areas our church activity.Sevika Sangham provides financial support for Missionary work.
