Established in 1904 Hudson Memorial Church is centrally located in the City of Bangalore, at what has come to be known as Hudson Circle near the Bangalore Corporation office. It is a Kannada Protestant Christian church and a prominent landmark in the city. It is recognized for its unique architecture, which is a combination of Classical and Gothic styles. The stained glass windows were painted by artists from London.
The church has a collective congregation of about 4,000 people and more.
It is dedicated to the memory of Rev. Josiah Hudson, who was a missionary and educationist, and is said to have encouraged the growth of Kannada by setting up schools in the city.
Initially, a church on Ganikara Street in Nargatpet was conducting service in Kannada. It is believed the same church was later shifted to Hudson Circle, by the Reverend’s daughter.
