Early days the people from the Vazhamuttom east used to attend the Worship in Mar Behanan church, Vazhamuttom west. Due to some inconvinencies because of r ain and certain other things they thought of church of their Own.As a matter of fact according to Malayalam Era 1109 Chinggam 15; a was formed for the people from Vazhamuttom east. As per the English calendar 4th, 5th June,1939 Bishop Puthencavil(Puthencavil thirumeni) Dedicated the new church , named Mar Bursouma Orthox Church.

In the early phase of the church 41 families along with 140 houses become the regular member’s .As days went by the church started flourishing with many families who are firm and committed. As per the church account, at present we have 5 people who are been trained for priests.(one remban, three fathers and one decan) . Because of the lack od space,in the church, the church is extended little more and the new church was finished on Feb8,2002.
