Partner Churches

Presbyterian Church of Myanmar

Partnership History

  • The Presbyterian Church of Myanmar (PCM) is concentrated in the Chin Hills and on the lowlands close to the border with India
  • There are now almost 30,000 members in 224 congregations. There are 20 presbyteries in nine synods that reflect the territorial and linguistic diversity of the membership
  • The church grew out of revival in 1930s among Lushai Presbyterians in north-east India and their migration from Assam, particularly after World War II and the union of two indigenous Mizo mission groups, one in the Chin Hills, the other in the valley, in 1956

Twinnings and Projects

  • Support for women's leadership training and capacity building
  • Support for development projects at Tahan Theological College, run by PCM but training ministers and church workers from over a dozen denominations
