The Church of South India (CSI) marked its Platinum Jubilee (75 years) with a worship ceremony earlier this year. Distinguished guests such as politicians attended the event, with the theme “Envisioning Together an Open Church in an Open World.”

Chief Minister of Tamil Nadu, Mr. M.K. Stalin brought greetings, where he commended CSI’s establishment of several educational institutions and hospitals as “a treasure house for the country and Tamil Nadu”. Mr Stalin also recognised CSI’s social service activities and lauded its contribution towards the communal harmony and secularism in India, and expressed his wish that such work would continue for a long time.
