The Armenian Church of Saint Gregory the Illuminator is the oldest Church in Singapore, locally referred to as the Armenian Church. It is located in a quiet place in the Hill Street vicinity and is one of the masterpieces of the Irish architect, George D Coleman. The Armenian community of Singapore regard this place as their spiritual abode, and the church now serves as a beautiful venue for couples to tie their knot in holy matrimony. The grand edifice is built in a British-neoclassical inspired architecture. This tranquil church is always a good option for an evening stroll.
Consecrated in1836, the Armenian Church of Singapore originally was in the Jurisdiction division of the Armenian Apostolic Church. It was later designated as a national monument in 1973. Now, the church serves as a peaceful tourist attraction and regularly holds Armenian and Oriental Orthodox services, mainly for the Armenian community. The Armenians were the first to adopt Christianity on a national level, and hence, sent missionaries and a few families as traders to different parts of the globe to spread Christianity. The Armenian Church in Singapore is a result of that.
