The Diocese of Hyderabad was formed in 1980. It consists of the whole Sindh except Karachi and enables rural Sindh to develop in response to its different needs.


There are 26 parishes that make up the Diocese of Hyderabad. Most of them have a core urban congregation of Punjabi and Indian families who have been Christian since the turn of the century. Most of the people in the diocese have positions of respect in government offices, business concerns or as professionals. Rural agricultural Punjabi families also live scattered throughout the Diocese. In addition, many tribal, Hindu oriented people are coming into the church as new believers.
