The church is of historical value. Not particularly lavish inside, but good from a historical perspective. Free admission. Worth a visit.

It was quiet when we were there, since it was weekdays I think. We went inside the church, it was so peaceful inside, you can pray too. It located in the Dutch Red Square area, so the Colour was the same as the Dutch Red square Building. Just stop by and take some pictures there when you go to Melacca.

This was a very moving place to reflex on the pioneering sprit of the young men & women who left there homes looking for fame & fortune in the new world. Malacca. Death from child birth, disease at an early age. A long way away from home & family. But still people do it today

Beautiful heritage landmark, quite crowded day and night. Prefer to come at night with some lighting around the area.

As I have said in other reviews, Melaka has lost its charm and has been ruined by the ugly face of tourism. I mustn't digress.... That aside Christ Church is steeped in history and it is a stunning building to be marvelled. The inside is a perfect place for quiet reflection and a moment to think about the roots of... More

First they didn't let us inside during praying and said come later, then when we went there again they said you cannot come inside because you are Muslim and you may turn to Christianity!? why?! I have never heard something like that!!!

This beautiful old Protestant church could really have you feel that you were somewhere in Europe and not in Southern Malaysia. Great photos.

It is the oldest functioning Protestant church in Malaysia and within the jurisdiction of the Lower Central Archdeaconry of the Anglican Diocese of West Malaysia.The first day I was walking around this and the second day I took the 3 Wheeler and went inside and spent nearly an hour and a half sitting in front of the water fountain and...

This is an 18th Century Anglican Church built by the Dutch. It is a brick red building with a white cross at the top. It is well maintained.

I wasn't overwhelmed with the internal aesthetics of the place, but no doubt its historical significance is paramount. Super near the rest of the Dutch area so worth a look if you're around- you don't need any longer than a piece of string- a short one.
