Presbyterian World Mission works in India through service of a mission co-worker and partner church relationships. Special ministries include ministries to street children and social justice programs. Other mission emphases include parish ministries, social, health and community development, unity and ecumenical relations, education, children’s ministries and evangelism. The church has had a significant and invaluable impact on the Dalit community and promoting harmony in this richly diverse cultural and religious nation.

The PC(USA) also joins with its partners in these ministries: church development, food aid, higher education, human rights advocacy, hunger, leadership development, ministry to minorities, theological education, women’s work and youth ministries.

The Church of North India is a union of six churches that came into being in 1970 with Reformed emphasis and Episcopalian system.
The Church of South India is the first union of Episcopalian and non-Episcopalian churches. Together with the Church of North India, it has been taking a leading role in promoting Christian unity and ecumenical relations.
The only typical Presbyterian denomination in India, the Presbyterian Church of India, traces its origin to the Welsh Presbyterian Church Mission and is concentrated mainly in the northeastern states. Insurgent underground groups have been active in all except one of the seven states in northeast India, and the church has an important role to play in promoting peace and harmony. Its primary mission focuses are evangelism and church development.
