It’s no wonder why St Andrew’s Cathedral is one of Singapore’s most treasured works of architecture. Gazetted as a national monument on 1973, you’ll stand in awe at its majestic facade, with extended pinnacles and a glossy white exterior.

I couldn't get in to the Sunday service, it was really full and there were tv screens with ads. Not much to look at, there are much more beautiful churches in Singapore

Anglican Church - St. Andrews Cathedral is close to the City Hall MRT Station. It offers Sunday Service to the Christian Community of Singapore in Seven Languages namely in English, Mandarin, Cantonese, Myanmarese, Tagalog, Hokkin and Bahasa Indonesia. It gives a great opportunity for the Members of these commnuitues to meet-up on during the weekends. I am proud to learn... More

St Andrews was a 5 minute walk away from our hotel so we would have been silly not to visit. We were at the end of a 4 week cruise around Asia and had seen lots of temples and pagodas so it was an interesting contrast to visit St Andrews two days prior to Good Friday. The history has been... More

Whilst doing a walking tour of the city of Singapore on my list was a visit to St Andrew's Cathedral. A piece of rich history occupies this site from literally hundreds of years ago and it is said that this was the site of the very first Anglican church which was completed around 1837. Of course we can't do anything... More

There were two former St. Andrew's Church's on this site. The first one being built in 1835 and the second in circa 1842, but it was demolished in 1855. Colonel Ronald MacPherson, the Executive Engineer and Superintendent of convicts, designed the new church and the foundation stone was laid by Daniel Wilson, bishop of Calcutta, on 4 March 1856, and...

Being my namesake, I decided to stop in for a quick look around the cathedral. Not amazing, but very nice and well maintained. I was a little embarrassed when I stopped by the gift shop to see if I could buy some rosary beads as a souvenir....this is an Anglican church, not a Catholic one. The people there were SUPER...

The peace and calm in this building is so pronounced. Walk through the doorway and the 20,000 taxis that ply their trade in this city are part of another world. The building is maintained to a high standard, without losing its charm and sense of history. Surrounded by Raffles Hotel and the Cricket Club, the atmosphere of the Empire continues,... More

The cathedral is close to City Hall MRT. Inside it is interesting to read the plaques on the walls which memorialise the lives of some early Singaporeans. Also of interest are the cane backed pews, a real necessity in this tropical climate
