Armenian Church, Singapore
(3.8/5 based on 80 reviews on the web)
The Armenian Church is the oldest Christian church in Singapore, located at Hill Street in the Museum Planning Area, within the Central Area, Singapore's central business district. Originally a parish of the Armenian Apostolic Church, an Oriental Orthodox denomination, the last Armenian parish priest left in the late 1930s, and with the dwindling Armenian population in Singapore, a successor was never appointed. Armenian and Oriental Orthodox services are occasionally held at the church.HistoryGeorge Drumgoole Coleman, overseer of Convicts and Superintendent of Public Works, was the architect of many of Singapore's finest historical buildings. The Armenian Church, arguably his masterpiece, is perhaps the finest landmark in the early architectural development of the nation.The government granted the land on which the church stands to the Armenian community in 1834. By 1835, the building was completed. Consecrated by Reverend Catchick Johannes in 1836 and dedicated to St Gregory the Illuminator, the first Patriarch of the Church in Armenia, it was the first church to be built in Singapore.

  • What a joy to see it, to be inside, to walk at the garden and talk to local Armenians about its history! 
  • 參觀完St. Andrew church 之後走過來這座亞美尼亞教堂,這小小的教堂很有特色,古老而典雅。教堂外丶近門口處有一雕像,很特別。 教堂外有一片草地丶寧靜,我坐在一長木椅上祈禱,很悠閒舒適。 
  • Old church located about seven, eight minutes from City Hall station. The white felt as the Church, very small and cute. So was Buster welcome Guide, tourism in nipple slip see also seems to be good. Being Singaporeans wedding day I went there and tourists together ~! Feeling, kinda fun. To or a cross around the Church, fairy statues, sculptures have been installed. Been in quite simple, here in White Center religious painting 1 piece set is Yoshi like feel. Park Public parking next to the Peranakan Museum if the car parking is not so good.
