Welcome to CSI Seaford
Established in 1982, the Church of South India Malayalam Congregation of Greater New York is the largest C.S.I. congregation in North America. Our congregation’s origins can be traced to 1979 when C.S.I. members in the New York metropolitan area began worshiping at the St. James Chapel of the Union Theological Seminary and later in a church at 57th Street in Manhattan. In February of 1982, a majority of this congregation moved to Woodhaven, Queens to form the Church of South India Malayalam Congregation of Greater New York.
From 1985 onwards, we have been blessed to receive the services of full-time Vicars, who are posted by the Madhya Kerala Diocese for 3-year terms. The full-time Vicar is also the President of the Board of Trustees of our congregation. Day to day administration of the church is handled by the Board of Trustees. Our congregation is a pastorate of the Madhya Kerala Diocese of the Church of South India. We are affiliated with The Council of C.S.I. Congregations in North America and with the United Church of Christ (UCC) in the United States.

is to witness to all Nations and baptize those that believeth in the name of the father, the Son and the Holy Spirit by water immersion, to Love the Lord our God with our Heart, soul and mind. Love our neighbor as our self (Mathew 22:37 & 39). By studying the Bible, Prayer, fasting and receiving revelation from God to set those held captive by the Satan free.(Isaiah 61:1).!
My loving members who have started the Real Fasting, “When you fast do not look gloomy like the hypocrites, they neglect their appearance.” What would you say if I say that, “Lent is a communal action and not an individual one?” Trust me, it is in this communal action that we try to transform ourselves into the Body of Christ, and also by being engaged in our society. We share our commitment with each other and it is that shared commitment or communal commitment that decides on how we move forward together.
