Unfortunately it is under renovation so if you want to see it in its beautiful state, come back another year. However, if you want to attend mass, it is in the open space (formerly the car park). Morning and evening weekday masses are held in the chapel on the 3rd floor.

This church seems to be undergoing some fairly major renovations work at present. As such it isn't possible to go inside. Sunday church services continue to be held, however, just outside the entrance to the church.

It is located right behind the Art Museum. And it is located within a block of Jewish, Hindu, and Buddhist religious centers, which is kind of neat. But there is nothing special about the church itself; St. Joseph, which is on the opposite end of the block, is much prettier.

this is a nice small church behind the Singapore art museum. I am catholic and it was just sad to see that the church was not maintained and is in dire need of a facelift.

A run down church with a few stained glass windows, and couple of statues and not a lot else. Paint is peeling from just about everywhere, some of the doors are boarded up, which was to stop them falling down. Lots of signs about donations for renovations and this church certainly needs it. If you are just looking at things,... More

St. P & P was once a beautiful church. Currently the paint on the ceiling is peeling away and the lack of air-conditioning during 95degree/95 percent humidity sure allows one to focus on breathing and controlling heat problems. The mass is very well attended by locals and the sermon was very lively and nailed the day's readings. If you have... More

My father and I heard mass at this church on June 24, 2012 which is the feast of St. John Baptist. The priest who presided over the celebration really gave a meaningful homily. The church will undergo renovation late this year if i'm not mistaken. The Church is just a 2 min walk from the Bayview Hotel at Bencoolen St.
