The diversity of faith and culture is a human heritage and for the Christians in Abu Dhabi, it is a special privilege. Our Church is a holy place and a house of Tamil speaking community who seeks to make it a place of welcome, beauty and holiness.
Right from the time the first CSI Tamil Church was started in Dubai, the vision of the people involved became a reality with new Churches being started in other Emirates, where Churches stand as a testimony. This missionary zeal spread to Abu Dhabi and thus the CSI Tamil Parish blossomed on 13th May, 1994 with few members and was officially inaugurated on 4th November, 1994 at Evangelical Church Center, Abu Dhabi.
Over a period of time the Congregation grew in strength and the C.S.I. Tamil Parish, Abu Dhabi was established as an independent church in the year 2000 and began to worship in St. Andrew’s Center.
Divine Worship Thursdays 8:30 pm to 10:00 pm (St. Andrew’s Main Chapel )
Junior Church Thursdays 7:15 pm to 8:15 pm (St. Andrew’s Hall).
As a local body of the CSI Tamil Christians based in the United Arab Emirates, the purpose for which the Church exists shall be to cater to the spiritual needs, foster brotherhood and Christian fellowship.
The church will:
- Serve as a movement of Unity in Diversity.
- Act as a catalyst to eliminate social and doctrinal divisions that divide the Christian community.
