This historic church, named after a patron saint of England, 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 colony in 1786. Stroll through the grounds and if you are lucky, you might just hear sweet strains of the church choir practicing.
