This slightly shabby church is the oldest in Singapore. Surprisingly green grounds behind the church with out-of-place Armenian crosses and medieval statuary. Nice to pop in and have a peaceful break from the city.

The first Christian church in Singapore. It is not very large, but it is built by the architect's cathedral in a very interesting tropical style

Located within a small churchyard on Hill Street, the church was built by Singapore's Armenian community. A very small church physically, but it also acts as a landmark for finding many other local attractions such as the fire station, Philatelic Museum and Peranakan Museum

Hi J6, Definitely not! This is a church; not a paid attraction. I don't even recall seeing a donation box, but there might be one. You'll enjoy it; the oldest church in Singapore, I believe, very centrally located, and... More
