Evangelical Protestantism came to India later through the efforts of British, American, German and Scottish missionaries to preach the gospel of Jesus Christ among Indians. The most valuable contribution they made, as part of their missionary work, was the introduction of English education for the first time in India that later fairly impacted the then native population.
During the colonization of India during the British rule, more and more churches were built across India by the missionaries to cater to the needs of Christian services by the British soldiers, officials and the British people, who had begun to own properties in the subcontinent, including Tea and coffee plantations in the hilly places.
