The PCI resulted from efforts of Welsh missionaries. Rev. Thomas Jones and his wife arrived in Cherrapunji (Sohra) on June 22, 1841. Even before, around 1813, the (Bapt) Serampore mission had started evangelistic work at the foot of the Khasi Hills; very soon two persons, U Duwan and U Anna, accepted the Christian faith. But this mission was closed down in 1838. The Welsh mission revived the work. In 1850 Rev. William Pryse arrived to strengthen the work. The first presbytery was formed in 1867 in the Khasi Hills; five presbyteries were established in 1895, resulting in 1896 in what was then called the Assembly. Work was also started in the plains of Sylhet and Cachar, where eventually another Assembly was formed. But since in 1947, when India and Pakistan were divided, the greater part of the area came under Pakistan, the Assembly was discontinued. Toward the end of the century the mission extended to Mizoram. In January 1894 the first Welsh missionary reached Aizawl in Mizoram; soon strengthened by the arrival of another missionary, the work began to develop in 1897. Through revival movements the church grew rapidly and includes today virtually the whole of the population. Various tribes in the North Cachar Hills who had been evangelized by missionaries and local workers were also organized as an Assembly in 1930. Finally, in 1978 the Manipur Presb Synod was formed. Initially, the local community of Manipur consisted of Christians of various tribal backgrounds. They were received into the Presb family in 1959 and since then recognized as a special field. The Assembly for the whole Presbyterian Church in Northeast India was established in 1926. Today it comprises seven Synods. The PCI is the largest denominational body in northeast India. The organization of the Church as a whole is in such away that the synods enjoy considerable autonomy and in fact have more authority than the Assembly. Some of the synods are highly centralized, while others exercise little control over the congregation. The General Assembly is the Apex Church Court, holding constitutional Jurisdiction over the Synods. In April 2002, the name of the Assembly was changed to the General Assembly of the PCI.
