C.S.I. Tamil Parish, Al Ain was formed on the 29th of January 1999 by the Divine Providence of God Almighty and was initiated by certain loyal members of CSI Tamil Parish, Abu Dhabi and CSI Tamil Parish, Dubai
The official inauguration was held on the 6th of February 1999, the service lead by Rev. William Samuel of CSI Parish, Dubai and Rev.V. David, Vicar of CSI Tamil Parish, Abu Dhabi. Since then we started Regular services and Holy Communion services in houses. This went on for about three months and due to security reasons, we were unable to continue doing the same. In August 2000 we got a place to worship at the Hilton Hotel. Until then, it was arranged to attend Communion in CSI Tamil Parish, Abu Dhabi and we were able to go twice a month. By the grace of our Lord Almighty, we got permission to worship in TEAM facility from 21 March 2001. We earnestly thank Rev. Stantan Rubesh, the TEAM Field Chairman for granting us to worship in the main hall. The pastors from CSI Tamil Parish, Abu Dhabi gave us the pastoral care and helped a lot in the growth of Al Ain congregation.
After the tenure of Rev. David in August 2001, Rev. James Prakasam took charge in CSI Tamil Parish, Abu Dhabi and ministering C.S.I. Tamil Parish, Al Ain for nine months. After a year Rev. Irvin Charles arrived in CSI Tamil Parish, Abu Dhabi on October 2002. During the time between these two pastors, Rev. Kumara Doss, who was residing in Dubai, was our honorary Pastor. In May 2006, as Rev. Irvin Charles finished his tenure, Rev .P. K. Samuel took charge.
In 2007 Annual General Body meeting held at CSI Tamil Parish, Abu Dhabi, our request has been accepted to function as independent pastorate. As a result, CSI Synod accepted CSI Tamil Parish Al Ain, and on 17 April 2008, The Moderator of CSI, The Most Rev.Dr. J.W.Gladstone dedicated this church to the glory of God and provides with a presbyter from CSI.
