“Oh Come, let us worship and bow down; Let us kneel before the Lord, Our Maker”- Psalms 95:6

As per God’s plan, it was decided that the worship center will host Malayalam Congregation every Sunday at 09:00AM, except for the Third Sunday. Our First worship service to praise the Lord almighty began on the 28th July in the House if Mrs. Annamma Thomas.

With the mercy of God, Late Rev. T V Abraham, the presbyter of CSI Malayalam Congregation at East Parade Church Bangalore, donated a land with a church building at Chinnapanahalli. This is the Genesis of CSI EBENEZER Church; the church got its shape on 6th October 1985 after the building was dedicated by Rt. Rev C D Jathanna in presence of Rev. S. Vasanth Kumar at the solemn worship in the evening. Our church was blessed since the beginning, back then we were the first Malayalam church to have the lord house owned. Praise to God and let the continued blessing shower upon the pastorate.
