“Immanuel Prayer Hall” consecrated in the year 1936 was the corollary to the efforts of a group of residents of Muttathara for the establishment of a place of worship through Mr. K. Thomas Pothen, Catechist, Christ Church, in 1932. The outstation is located close to the seashore. The 40 ft. x 20 ft. building, completed in 1934, came up on 1 acre and 30 cents of land, granted by the Chairman, City Mission, Trivandrum. The construction was well supported by Rev. M.G. Chandy, Vicar, Christ Church, Mr. Baker Fenn, Mr. Eapen Ittiavarah, Professor of Law College, Trivandrum and K.Thomas Pothen, Catechist.Rev. C.K. Jacob, Archdeacon, who was installed as the Bishop of Madhya Kerala Diocese of the Church of South India later, had baptized seventy-five residents of the locality after the consecration of the Church. The Archdeacon exhorted the believers on the occasion with Eph. 2:19, “You are no longer foreigners and aliens but fellow citizens with God’s people and members of God’s household”.

An orphanage with 18 children from Manacadu and Muttathara was launched in 1936 by Ms. Eliyamma Oommen in a small building with 3 rooms acquired for Rs. 253.00. The Mission House, Orphanage and Nursery School are maintained through contributions from the congregation and liberal assistance from Christ Church.

The Church, renamed as “Immanuel CSI Church”, celebrated its Platinum Jubilee in 2007. Divine Worship is held at 8.30 a.m. on Sundays. Holy Eucharist is celebrated on second Sundays. An elected committee manages the affairs of the Church. Women’s Fellowship, Youth Movement, Choir and Sunday School are vibrant. The congregation has 47 families with 117 subscribing members. In order to cater to the burgeoning community that worships at the Church, the ancient structure has given way to a magnificent building. The project has been taken up by CSI Christ Church, Trivandrum, to commemorate its Sesquicentennial Celebrations. Not to be outdone, the congregation at Muttathara adds their mite to the effort.
