Churches in North India
Churches in South India


In 1930 the Anglican Church in India separated from the Church of England and became the autonomous Church of India, Burma and Ceylon, still within the worldwide fellowship of the Anglican Communion. In 1947, Protestant Churches in South India united to form the new Church of South India. Protestant churches in North India, and Pakistan followed in 1970. However there are some breakaway churches.

The following is a list of all the bishops and dioceses of the Church of North India, correct as at January 1995. Check whether you can find a current address in one of the websites quoted below. The CNI was formed out of most of the Protestant denominations of Christian churches, after Independence from Britain. If you are trying to find the location of a specific church in North India, you could write to the diocese and they may give you the postal address and the pastor's name, however many churches have now closed. Note that in many cases, the original pre-Independence records are kept in the Diocesan office itself. If you wish to view original old records while in India, then the Diocesan Office itself is your most likely source.

Note: You may find that you do not receive a response to an email, due to lack of staff or other reasons. You could try telephone contact, but you may find that only a personal visit will yield results, and in some instances the required record has not survived.

If you are just starting to research, please note that the best way of trying to find out about your ancestors' baptisms, marriages and burials is NOT to go directly to the church concerned, but rather to view the records that have been indexed and digitised from the records held in London. See Beginners' Guide.
