The Holy Metropolis of Singapore, headquartered in Singapore, is an eparchy of the Church of Constantinople. Currently vacant, this see was established in January 2008 to encompass India, Indonesia, Malaysia, Pakistan, Afghanistan, Maldives Islands, Bangladesh, Nepal, Bhutan and Sri Lanka.


On January 9, 2008, the Holy Synod of the Church of Constantinople decided to divide the western part of the Orthodox Metropolitanate of Hong Kong and Southeast Asia from the eastern part, thus forming the Holy Metropolis of Singapore which extends further west to encompass South Asia. As yet, the metropolis has not had a bishop elected to lead it.
