Zion Church Batticaloa, Sri Lanka which is a branch church of Lighthouse Church, Kandy and a member of the Fellowship of Free Churches of Sri Lanka, was founded through a crusade conducted by Rev. Dr. Verghese Chandy who was a Senior Pastor of Lighthouse Church, Kandy in 1973. What began as a Prayer Fellowship under the prayerful Leadership of Pastor Inpam & Ranji Moses with a handful of believers has grown today to may hundreds of believers by the dynamic leadership of Rev. Roshan Mahesan since 1991.
A large piece of land was donated by Mr.S. Ramanadas and an adjoining piece of land was purchased by the church with a vision to build a large church after the Resurrection Sunday 21st April 2019 bomb blast by the Islamism terrorist group, which is under construction now to accommodate the growing crowds in Manresa, Batticaloa (4.5km from the present church building) in the municipal limits on the Batticaloa – Trinco main road.
Since its inception, the church has become a beacon of light and hope to many hundreds of families who have been benefited by the spiritual nourishment and fellowship available through its services.
We welcome you to be a part of our service if you are looking for a church in your area.
