About Us

Christ Church as All Saints’ Church was known initially was consecrated at Kirkee (now Khadki) in the year 1837 by Bishop Thomas Carr. The Chaplain of Kirkee was in charge of the church then.

As the original structure was small and was insufficient for the ever growing numbers under the British Raj, the present enlarged structure came into being sometime around 1869 and came to be better known as All Saints’ Church. A stone baptismal font was built on the west entrance with the Trinity sign carved on it. The floor is made of stone blocks to bear the brunt of the soldier’s boots.

From its earliest times, All Saints’ Church has been historically a Garrison Church. The front pews still hold brass plaques showing places meant for the “Governor”, “General Officer in Command” with slots on the pews to rest the service rifles.

A proof of the church having served the Garrison is sufficiently seen on the various stone plaques erected inside which date back to early 1834. These were erected from time to time to commemorate and remember all those who laid down their lives in action. Two colours of such battalions adorn the sides of the stone walls towards the Altar. Five such colours were handed over to the Bombay Engineering Group on April, 18th 1993, to be rested with them. These pertained to the Marine Battalion raised on January 3, 1777 by Capt. James Jameson and which was later redesignated in 1824 as the 21st (Or Marine) Battalion of Bombay Native Infantry. In 1903 this Battalion was redesignated as the 21st Piooners which in 1922 became the 10th Battalion of the 2nd Bombay Pioneers which in 1929 became part of the Corps of Bombay Pioneers. The Marine Battalion was amalgamated with the Bombay Sappers on November 23rd 1932.

The bell of the church weighs nearly a tonne and is made of cast brass. The sound of the chime can be heard for quite a distance even in today’s noisy world. The original pivot mounting of the bell has weathered long years and is still in service with absolutely no maintenance required. This bell has tolled over these years at joyous festive occasions, regular church services and at funeral services.

The stained glass at the Altar, West End and North face were imported from Belgium. Each glass weighs close to a tonne. The Altar glass was damaged in the late 1960s and was successfully restored in 2000. The stained glass at the Altar depicts the story of Christ at His Birth, Death and Resurrection.

The wood for the roof, furniture and pulpit was imported from Burma and pure teak wood was used. The corrugated tin for the roof was imported from Great Britain and has stood the test of time to date. There is a band stand balcony built on the north side which housed the Garrison Band that catered to music during worship.

The wooden paneling at the Altar was erected in 1935 under Chaplain F.E. Dasselord in commemoration of King George the Vth ascension to the throne. This fact has been carved on the panels.

Records of Baptism, Marriage and Death registers are available since 1854, to date. Since the church is well maintained, we are confident that it would serve generations to come.

  Bible Nuggets
Not only so, but we also glory in our sufferings, because we know that suffering produces perseverance; perseverance, character; and character, hope. And hope does not put us to shame, because God’s love has been poured out into our hearts through the Holy Spirit, who has been given to us. You see, at just the right time, when we were still powerless, Christ died for the ungodly.
Romans 5:3-6 (NIV)
The Lord is my strength and my defence; he has become my salvation. He is my God, and I will praise him, my father’s God, and I will exalt him.
Exodus 15:2 (NIV)
But I am like an olive tree flourishing in the house of God; I trust in God’s unfailing love for ever and ever.
Psalm 52:8 (NIV)
And without faith it is impossible to please God, because anyone who comes to him must believe that he exists and that he rewards those who earnestly seek him.
Hebrews 11:6 (NIV)
The Lord is my light and my salvation— whom shall I fear? The Lord is the stronghold of my life— of whom shall I be afraid?
Psalm 27:1 (NIV)
Fear the Lord your God and serve him. Hold fast to him and take your oaths in his name. He is the one you praise; he is your God, who performed for you those great and awesome wonders you saw with your own eyes.
Deuteronomy 10:20-21 (NIV)
Oh, that salvation for Israel would come out of Zion! When the Lord restores his people, let Jacob rejoice and Israel be glad!
Psalm 14:7
Jesus is “‘the stone you builders rejected, which has become the cornerstone.’ Salvation is found in no one else, for there is no other name under heaven given to mankind by which we must be saved.”
