Shlama Akhi George,

george Wrote:There is not a single trace of COE left in the island of Java (including Jakarta) in Indonesia. Most probably they all had been converted to Protestant Churches by the Dutch Colony during the 17th century.

But by the time the Roman Catholic and Dutch Protestant missionaries arrived in Indonesia, Islam had been long established. Most likely, those who converted to Islam were former CoE Christians....but the horrible events of the 13th and 14th centuries cut them off from the leadership in Babylon?

In all probability - your ancestors most likely were CoE who refused to convert to Islam, no? I don't think the Catholic and Protestant missionaries had much success among the Muslims.

From what I read, the CoE reached Aceh, Java, Sumatra, etc. in the early 6th century. That's 1,200 years before the missionaries arrived. So that means for over a millenium the Christian confession in the country was CoE.

I've always heard and read the Patriarchs lament over the loss of the Church in Indonesia and other places like the Philippines and China.

If you're serious about this, we should contact the Church Hierarchy and work to re-establish the CoE in Jakarta. I think it's a terrible thing that the first Christian community ever to set foot in Indonesia is the only one not represented there anymore. There is a rich history of CoE Christianity among your people - and I bet there are priceless Aramaic manuscripts among the ruins in places like Aceh and Sumatra.
