History of Divine Grace Church, Mukudal.

In 1835 Rev. CT Rhenius visited Mukudal and preached the Gospel and Mrs. Thayammal was one of the believer who obeyed to the truth and accepted Jesus Christ as her personal Saviour. She was the first convert in Mukudal. Her son Chelliah Nadar and his son Ponniah Nadar and his cousins Aanda Perumal @ Aanimuthu Nadar, Daniel, Iyadurai, Poovaiya (later became Thasildhar) constructed a small Church  with clay & Palm thatched roof and worshipped the living God. Aanda Perumal does the Catechist work. And TDTA Primary school was started.  Children were learning under Vepa tree, writing tamil alphapets on the sand and learned the lessons.  On 1874 the congregation increased to 70 families and as they were growing constructed a tiled roof church.  For the present Church, the foundation stone was laid by Rt. Rev. Jason S. Dharmaraj MA BD Dip.Th on 21/06/1989  & dedicated it on 23/12/1990, when Rev. T. Jesumanickam Amirtharaj was serving as  the Pastorate Chairman.
