C.S.I. St. Peter's was consecrated on 1st June, 1987 with a congregational strength of about 10 families. (See the History of our Church.) The Church grew since its inception and now has an active membership of 700+ families. The Church is headed by C.S.I. Coimbatore Diocese and shares the common believes of Church of South India.
C.S.I. St. Peter's is situated in the densely populated Residential area of Rathinapuri, Coimbatore in South India. As the church is surrounded by residents, the people around the Church are greatly benefitted by the Worship and Sermons from the Church.
The Church is away from the noise of busy traffic and provides a calm environment for Praying and Medidating the Word of the Lord. The Church has become a place where many people visit atleast a day - thus a Comfort for many Souls.
Rev. S. Prince Calvin B.A.,B.D.,M.Th. is the current Presbyter and Chairman of the Church. He leads the church in regular Sunday Worship Services and other events. He holds the position of Hon. Secretary of C.S.I. Coimbatore Diocese. Read More about our Presbyter here.
The Church was initially started in a tiled shed in the year 1984. Then a Church building (the current Parish hall) was constructed at a cost of 10 Lakhs in the year 1994 which served for worshipping our Lord.
With a Future Vision, the Church Dining Hall was constructed adjoining to the old Church and the entire real-estate was utilised and a Grand new Church was built covering the entire area of Church Premises. The New Church was dedicated on 13 December 2014.
The new Church can accomodate a congregation of about 700+ people and is equipped with all light & sound facilities to conduct regular Worship Services. A Generator is also provisioned to provide un-interrupted power supply during the Church Worship.
In addition to this, the Church's Parish Hall (Old Church) serves as an auditorium along with the Dining Hall to host any functions that are not part of the Church Service. The Parish Hall and the Dining space are also open to church members to use for thier specific needs when its free from Church duties.
