Penang Heritage Tip :: St. George Church

Address: 1, Lebuh Farquhar 10200 Penang

At the corner of Lebuh Farquhar and Jalan Mesjid Kapitan Keling, the historic church, named after a patron saint of England, is reportedly the oldest Anglican church in Malaysia. Built by convicts, it has been faithfully holding services since its conception in 1818. The grand Francis Light memorial that rests in front of the church is a reflection of Penang’s tribute to Francis Light, who established the island as an English settlement in 1786. Stroll the grounds and if you’re lucky, then you might just hear strains of the church choir practising. English services are held on Sundays at 8.30am.
