A historic old church
2017年12月 • 家庭
My parents lived in Meerut for close to twenty years, and whenever I visited them, if I happened to be there on a Sunday or a festival such as Christmas, Good Friday or Easter, I would go along with them to the church of which they were members: St John’s Church, in the Meerut Cantonment. Back then (I had last visited perhaps about four year ago), this church was looking a little shabby, its paint peeling and the grass growing tall beneath the mango trees in the large churchyard.

This last December, though, I visited again to attend a function, and was pleased to find that a restoration/renovation project has been carried out to get St John’s back on its feet. Fresh pale-yellow paint with white trim now covers the building (and its clock tower); the windows have been repainted in deep green, and on the inside, new tiles cover the floor. More lights have been added, too.

What really makes St John’s (the full name, as mentioned on the plaque at the gate post, is the St John’s Garrison Church) special is the historicity of it. Built under the aegis of the East India Company, which was then strengthening its base in this part of India, the church’s construction was begun in 1819 and carried on for a further 2 years, being completed in 1921, when it was consecrated, thus making it the oldest British-built church in North India.

That in itself would’ve made St John’s worth a mention. What makes it even more interesting is that it was the scene of a dramatic encounter during 1857. When the Revolt/First War of Independence broke out, rebels attacked the church, with its congregation inside (according to local legend, the fact that the clock on the clock tower is stopped—and you can see what are supposed to be bullet marks in the plaster—means that a bullet hit the clock, stopping it forever at the time the church was attacked).

The congregation of St John’s recovered, and Meerut itself remained an important garrison town, but some changes were implemented to guard against a repetition of the 1857 situation, when the English had been caught offguard. The soldiers now attending church were allowed (even possibly encouraged) to carry rifles, and for this, slots were made in the pews, to allow guns to be placed during mass. Also, a guard house was set up just outside the main building of the church.

The pews with their slots still remain as the side pews. The guard house, which was converted into a toilet, still stands (the actual toilet now, a new one, stands alongside it). And if you spend half an hour or so wandering through the inside of the church, you’ll see dozens of interesting and historic old plaques in memory of people who lived and died in this area over the past two hundred years or so.

Entry to the church is free. Please note that since this is a place of worship, a certain decorum is called for. Sunday service (only in English) is held at about 9 or 9.30 during the summer months and about 10 in the winter.

The parish church of St John the Baptist is the oldest church edifice in the northern half of India.Some of the graves are more than a century old and contain engraved headstones, carved pillars and some very elegant tombs bordering on antiquity.
