My World Tuesday - Sculpture Square

This is a methodist church known as Kampong Kapor Methodist Church at Middle Road. It has a long history and is one of the oldest church in Singapore and protected as a heritage building. It has since moved to a new location and this present church is part of the sculpture square.



The church was formerly known as "Malay Church" because they conduct their services in malay to cater to malay speaking christains. For more of its rich history you can view their offical website.

Love the beautiful windows of the church.

Around the church you can also see lots of sculptures.




For more information on the sculpture square you can view their official website .
Please visit "That's my World" for other parts of the world.

Vietnam is an amazing place - I highly recommend a visit. I have enjoyed looking at your photos of Singapore, I am planning on visiting this summer, so it's nice to get a preview!
