History of All Saints Church

It is one of the first English churches in Malay states and belongs to the Anglican Diocese of West Malaysia. Designed by Mr. George A. Lefroy, an Australian architect, this church was opened for worship on 27th March 1887.  In 1907, All Saints’ Church Taiping became the Parish Church of North Perak. The church remains largely unchanged from the time when it was constructed in 1886. The most alluring stained glass in the church that was installed in 1911 surprisingly sustained the second world war and is still undamaged. All Saints Church is one of those rarest churches in Malaysia using the pipe organ whose maintenance requires RM10,000 annually.
