St George's Church
Oldest Anglican church in Malaysia
Saint George Church, is reportedly the oldest Anglican church in Malaysia.
Built by convicts, at the corner of Lebuh Farquhar and Jalan Mesjid
Kapitan Keling, 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 in 1786. Stroll through the grounds
and if you are lucky, you might just hear sweet strains of the church
choir practising. Services in English are held on Sundays at 8.30am.
