    Oldest Christian church in Singapore It’s Neoclassical architecture which was designed by George Coleman. It’s his masterpiece as well. This church was dedicated to St. Gregory the Illuminator. It’s a National Historic Site.

    The oldest church in Singapore and the centre of a historic Armenian diasporic community in colonial Singapore. Easily accessible by public transit, the church is an oasis of calm and tranquility in bustling Singapore. Worth a visit, whether to admire the historic architecture and tombstones/memorials, or just come in for prayer and a short respite from the hustle and bustle of life.

    Singapore’s oldest church and among our very smallest. Dating back to the 1830’s, this often overlooked incredible building is a historical landmark in its’ own right.

    Very well-maintained despite the Church’s age and history. I really enjoyed the older photos contained within the informative displays, also including some pictures, located inside of the Church.

    Outside in the garden, the array of various tombstones and variety of prominent figures buried here was fascinating to learn about from the small, insightful and well-placed stands doted around the area. Thank you for maintaining this important relic so well!

    Not a ton to see here, but a unique church. Singapore’s smallest church is built in the Armenian style which is a bit dark and atmospheric. The back is a bit more interesting with statues and a small graveyard. Seems like it’d be spooky at night.

    Beautiful old church, in fact the oldest in town and one of the oldest buildings in the region, a must visit for anyone interested in the history of Singapore.
    The tombs are also very interesting, ranging from 19th to 21st century, reflecting the history of the Armenian community and Singapore as a whole.

    Why , on Sundays, are Myanmar women allowed to eat, drink, break through the ‘NO ENTRY’ barrier. Why do they play and dance to loud videos on their notebook?

    Why, when others pray in silent respect, do they chat on their headphones?

    Why does the church allow this?

    The Armenian Church of Saint Gregory the Illuminator, referred to locally as the Armenian Church, is the oldest Christian church in  located at Hill Street which was built in 1835.
    Nestled on the tranquil grounds of the Church is the Memorial Garden is a collection of unique tombstones marking the life of Armenians who made a significant contribution to Singapore. Early Armenian settlers were buried in the old Fort Canning cemetery.
    A site definitely worth visiting if you are visiting Singapore.

    A little piece of history, piety and culture in the middle of the city. When I visited this place, there wasn’t much people, so it was very serene and quiet all around the church and garden.
    I just hope they would maximize this place, not just as a historical site, but also as a church and cultural center.
    I wonder if, aside from weddings, Eastern Rite liturgies are still celebrated here?

Am i the only one to think that statue is creepy? Btw i didnt go in to see the church in the day like normal people before so i cant comment about that.

    I attended a wedding of my friend on 30 June 2018 at this church. The church is nice after all the decoration, and a good place for small wedding. The accommodated size is ~100 person. And there is no air conditioning inside the church. Maybe if there is strong air conditioning, the place will be perfect.

    A small church in the center of Singapore, built by the Armenian diaspora in 1835, was struck by the fact that at that time there were only about 50 Armenians living in Singapore.
    On the territory there are sculptures depicting the judgment and the path of Christ to Calvary, there are also tombstones of honorary citizens of Armenian nationality, although there are no graves under them.

    I highly recommend a visit to Singapore’s first church built in the early 1800’s. Armenians have played an integral role in the development of Singapore from the Raffles Hotel to Armenian Street.

    A visit (by appointment) to the museum on the church grounds is also worth it to further understand the rich history of Armenians in Singapore.
