St. Thomas Christians or the Indian Syrian Christians exist at present in different churches and denominations. But a major section of the parent body of St. Thomas Christians which has maintained its independent nature constitute The Orthodox Church under the Catholicate of the East on the Apostolic Throne of St. Thomas and the Malankara Metropolitan with Headquarters at Devalokam, Kerala in India. The Church, though modern in its vision and outlook, keeps the traditional oriental Orthodox faith and liturgy.

St. Stephen's Orthodox Church, Thane fall under direct administration of Malankara Metropolitan and it is part of Bombay Diocese. The history of our Church is available on this website.
