Church of Ceylon - Diocese of Colombo
The Church of England existed in Sri Lanka since 1815. The Diocese of Colombo was founded in 1845. It was established by law in 1886.
Consequent to the Anglican Churches of South India, North India and Pakistan becoming part of United Churches in their respective Countries and the Anglican Dioceses of Burma becoming an autonomous Province, the wider historic Province of India, Pakistan, Burma and Ceylon ceased to exist. This situation resulted in the two Diocese of the Church of Ceylon, namely, the Diocese of Colombo and Diocese of Kurunagala, becoming what is known as “extra provincial Diocese”, and continued to be governed by the CCR of the former Province.
The Diocese of Kurunagala was established in 1946 and was recognized legally in 1972.The Diocese of Colombo and Kurunagala together constitute the Church of Ceylon
