1st June, 2016
Dear fellow members of CSI,
We would like to bring to your notice that the working committee of Synod is going to meet on 3.6.2016 after the Bishops Council at Simla. The working committee consists of all Bishops and their stooges (except few). On 16.10.2015, the committee passed resolutions with regard to amendments and bye-laws which disunited the CSI and built a vertical wall between the clergy and laity. These Anti-Church functions of Synod Working Committee according to the whims and fancies of the Episcopacy drove the People of God to approach the law courts for justice.
To escape from the criminal activities and to protect their luxuries lives and Episcopal supremacy in the Church, they planned to convene the working committee meeting again on 3.6.2016 to take over the Church in to their hands, to cripple the rights of the members and continue to loot the properties of the Church in spite of the Hon’ble Warangal Court Order. As per this restraining order, the Moderator, General Secretary and the Treasurer are not the members of any Committee.
Working Committee of Synod is a sub-committee appointed by the Synod Executive Committee which invariably passes Anti-Church Resolutions overthrowing the powers of elected Synod Executive Committee. Without the approval of the Synod Executive Committee, the Resolutions so passed by the working committee are carried out by the Episcopal Leaders and they notify the Resolutions as the “Law of the Church” and impose them on the People of God only for the self gain of the Episcopal Leaders at the cost of God Ordained Unity in the Church of South India.
CSITA is the only Registered body and the CSI is the Unit of the CSITA. The Memorandum of Association of CSITA 3(b) has assigned prime responsibilities to the CSITA such as to aid and further the work of the Church of South India and for that purpose to do and carry out all such matters and things to promote the objects of the Church.
Since the working committee is constantly working against the interest of the Church and her 45 lakhs People of God, the Management Committee of the Church of South India Trust Association has decided not to allow the Working Committee further to function and to indulge in Anti-Church activity, to create a flutter and division in CSI for their personal gain by mocking the very sanctum of Governing Principle of the Church “That they all may be one…”. It is also discussed at large about the Revival of Episcopacy in CSI since Episcopacy one of the partners of the United CSI, tries to disintegrate the Church and to make the Church a subservient and self serving body of Episcopacy.
After lengthy discussion, the Management Committee of the Church of South India Trust Association carried out the following Resolution and decided to publish it through various media:
“The Management Committee of the Church of South India Trust Association Resolved and Dissolved the Synod Working Committee of CSI with effect from 1st June, 2016 in the interest of the United Church CSI, to preserve the unity of the 45 lakhs People of God enshrined and emphasized in the Governing Principal of CSI Constitution and to carry out the responsibility entrusted to the Trust (CSITA) under the Memorandum of Association. Therefore, any Resolution(s) illegally passed by the Synod Working Committee will not be binding on the Members of the Church of South India and the Church of South India Trust Association.
