The Diocese of Durgapur is a part of the Church of North India. It was established in the year 1972. At present, the Diocese ministers to seven districts of West Bengal, including, Bankura, Burdwan, Malda, Medinipore, Purulia, North Dinajpur and South Dinajpur. There are 183 churches under the Diocese as of 2016.
Under the guidance and leadership of our Bishop, The Rt. Revd. Dr. Probal Kanto Dutta, witnessed an exhilarating wave of development. The good work of our Diocese has helped us make its mark at the Synod level as well infiltrate the hearts and minds of the people we serve.
Free medical services, vocational training and several development projects are also administered by the Diocese.
“It is a matter of great joy and honour for us to have completed fourteen years in service to the Lord, through the least of his people. Jesus had said, “Let the little children come to me…” and it is this statement which has aided us and strengthened us during our journey with the His children in the Diocese.
It was a tiny seed of a dream that has now grown into a big tree. This would not have been possible without the dedication and the love of the members of the Diocese. Our international friends have also been a major support in our endeavour to turn around this failing diocese.
I would like to thank God for His bountiful blessings upon us and keep praying to Him to help us and to give us the strength to carry on His mission of bringing peace through kindness.”
