The National Council of Churches in India mourns the loss of Bishop Dr. S.K. Parmar. He passed away on the morning of 26th January at the age of 85.

Bishop Parmar served God through the Methodist Church and the wider community with selfless commitment and distinction. Bishop Parmar was an outstanding leader who served as Bishop of the Methodist Church in India, and in various capacities in national and international fora.

He served the NCCI as Vice-President from 1979-1983 for one term, and as President from 1983 - 1991 for two terms. His ecumenical initiatives and contributions have enriched our churches in innumerable ways.

We, the NCCI Family, remember with gratitude the life and ministry of Bishop Dr. S.K. Parmar.

We share the grief of Mrs. Parmar, children and grand-children and assure them of our prayers. The funeral will be conducted on 27th January 2014 at 4:00 p.m. at Protestant Cemetery, Narayanguda, Hyderabad.
