Church of Christ in Malacca

Church of Christ in Malacca, built in 1753 to commemorate the centenary of the capture of Malacca, is one of the most recognizable and photographed places in the city. It is also the oldest Protestant church in Malaysia.

Rarely any publication or internet site about Malacca is complete without a photo of this place. The reason for this popularity is the central location of the church and its spectacular appearance. The building is built of red brick, brought here by ships from Holland. It, along with the former building of the residence of the Dutch governor (Stadthuys) and the city clock (Clock Tower), is located in the heart of the historic district of Malacca.

Inside the church you can go, if you want to sit on a bench. At the entrance, church paraphernalia and souvenirs with symbols of Malaysia and Malacca are sold, the money from the sale of which goes to the maintenance of the church. There are also several old Dutch graves. Despite the fact that inside at the entrance there are signs asking not to take photos, this warning applies mainly to the place of sale of church goods and souvenirs.

🕐  Working hours: the church is open to all from 09:00 to 17:00 daily. Services are held at 08: 30( in English), 10: 30, 16: 30 and 17: 00.

💵  Entrance fee / tickets price: free, donations in the form of buying souvenirs are welcome.

🚶   How to get there: the church is located in the heart of the historic quarter (church on the map) and, along with the Stadthuys building, city clock and Dutch Square, is an important landmark and starting point for many routes. Bus number 17 from Malacca bus station stops here.
