Short History: The need was felt to cater to the people of Khed, Chiplun and Alore from Harnai. Due to the distance, these centers were taken off from Harnai and registered as Khed, having a Chapel of its own,. Due to the emergence of Enron and the need to serve the people of Enron at Renvi, Guhagar; the need was felt to have a chapel and residence at Chiplun from where Khed, Alore, Guhagar could be easily reached. Chiplun - Khed has a long history of Scottish Protestant missionaries coming in 1805, 35 years before the Catholic missionaries entered Maharashtra, to start an intellectual apostolate. They translated the Bible into colloquial Marathi and their graves are said to be in Chiplun though their residence was in Khed.
