The Holy Metropolis of Singapore, headquartered in Singapore, is an eparchy of the Church of Constantinople. The Metropolis was established in January 2008 to encompass Singapore, India, Indonesia, Malaysia, Pakistan, Afghanistan, Maldives Islands, Bangladesh, Nepal, Bhutan and Sri Lanka.

History

On January 9, 2008, the Holy Synod of the Church of Constantinople decided to divide the western part of the Orthodox Metropolitanate of Hong Kong and Southeast Asia from the eastern part, thus forming the Holy Metropolis of Singapore which extends further west to encompass South Asia. At that time, the Synod did not select a bishop for the new metropolis.

On November 3, 2011, the Holy Synod elected the Protosyngellos of the Metropolis of Hong Kong, Archimandrite Constantine (Tsilis) as the first Metropolitan of Singapore.[1]

The Episcopacy

This see is currently vacant.

Rev. Chrysostomos Manalu is a graduate of the Aristotle University, Thessaloniki, Greece (1995). Fr. Chrysostomos has taken many underprivileged children under his care as more and more of the Indonesian people sink into poverty. He provides them with room and board, food and schooling. A women medical center, Theological school (St. Paul Theological School) and a boarding house are also in the works in order to better serve the needs of the area.
