St George's 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.
The building was designed by Captain Robert Smith, a military engineer whose oil paintings of early Penang can be seen in the Penang State Museum. Services in English are held on Sundays at 8.30am.
In 2011, restoration works was completed. Now we get to view the newly whitewash church with a clock in front of the church. Time to get more photos StGeorge Church.
