The Diocese of Durgpur is a Church Body covering Seven Districts (Bankura, Burdwan, Malda, Medinipore, Purulia, North Dinajpur, South Dinajpur) of West Bengal and having its Head Quarters in Durgapur.
This predominantly Tribal CNI Diocese has been quite proactively involved in various developmental works benefiting its community which have been neglected and provide them with lives of dignity and sustainability and initiate new energy within the various Institutions so that they increase both academically and potentially.
This period has seen new Churches being constructed, old dilapidated ones being renewed. At present the Diocese has 19 full time presbyters, 1 presbyter undergoing theological education up-gradation, 6 honorary presbyters and 2 ordinands.
The Diocesan Women’s Fellowship has extended its Ministry to serving children from slums who are otherwise neglected and prone to getting abused. It is providing training to women of the weaker social section and thus empowering them. New Schools have been opened, giving the society a dais from where good nurtured, educated and cultured future citizens are prepared.
During these five years the Diocese has got immense prayers and support from friends and well wishers both in India and Abroad. It is really astonishing and inspirational to see God’s word in action within this Diocese. During this period at the same stage this Diocese has received His profound blessings. We look forward for your prayers and support in the future so that the mandate of Christ our Lord be fulfilled within this Diocese.
