The Mar Thoma Suvisesha Sevika Sangham the women's wing, was inaugurated during the Maramon Convention in the year 1919, under the leadership of our Metropolitan Abraham Mar Thoma Suffragan, who gave the Sangham support and inspiration.
Every women of the Mar Thoma Church above the age of 18 years is a member of the Sevika Sangham. The Vicar of the parish is the President of the branch Sevika Sanghom, who gives guidence and support to the activities. The Auckland Mar Thoma Church Sevika Sangham was started under the leadership of Rev. Raji Eapen in 2008.
The aims of the Sevika Sangham are:
• To make the women of the parish interact in love and friendship with one another and promote Christian fellowship
• To help in the work of the parish, church in the wider society.
• In initiating the above two, it is hoped that all the members will inculcate a spiritual dimension, leadership qualities and a feeling of social responsibility.
Since its inception in 2008, the women whole-heartedly participated in the different activities and organisations of the church. The Sevika Sangham meetings are held every second Sunday of the month after the church service for prayer and Bible Study. The Sevika Sangham members serve tea and biscuits after each Sunday service for the social interaction of the parishioners.
