Secretary: Mrs. Sicy Johnson
The Mar Thoma Suvisesha Sevika Sangham was inaugurated during the Maramon Convention in the year 1919, under the leadership of Abraham Mar Thoma Suffragan Metropolitan. Every woman of the Mar Thoma Church above the age of 18 years is a member of the Sevika Sangham. The motto of the Sevika Sangham is – ‘Service and Evangelism, in the life and mission of the Mar Thoma Church’.
The organization owes much to the self sacrificing and tireless work of Mrs. Kandamma Varghese as organising Secretary for over 20 years travelling far and wide, organising branches in parishes, doing evangelistic work among Christians and non-Christians. She also served as General Secretary for a few years. Dr. Mrs. Annamma George served as organising Secretary for 14 years and organised centres and centre meetings. Her theological insights and vision have taken the women of the Sevika Sangham to a higher level of thinking in the social and religious sphere.
To strengthen the spiritual life within the group, the Sevika Sangham meets monthly via zoom for Bible study and prayer under the leadership of the Vicar. Cottage meetings are also held when possible. The World Day of Prayer and Sevika Sangham Day are observed each year where the women assist and actively participate in the worship service on that day. The group also attends the Center B Sevika Sangham, South West Regional Sevika Sangham and Diocese Sevika Sangham prayer meetings when held. The women of the church are actively involved in all activities of the church and play a vital part in the growth of the church.
