The Armenian Church

Posted by spots (Singapore, Singapore) on 2 July 2008 in People & Portrait and Portfolio.

I mentioned we visited the Central Fire Station over the weekend. Well right next to it is a lovely church which welcomes visitors. It's commonly known in Singapore as the Armenian Church, but I think it's full name involves the name St Gregeory.

You should definitely visit if you are keen. The grounds contain installation art depicting the Trial of Christ and His carrying of the Cross up the Mount where He was crucified. The grounds are beautiful, as is the interior chapel, and we also looked at the small cemetery area, with tombstones dating back to 1908!

The only Armenian church in Singapore at that. I can't recall if it's the oldest surviving church (older than St Andrew's?)

Didn't know it was open to visitors! Must drag wife and son to go when he's older.
