    The main cathedral in Singapore and a stunning example of the architecture of the area which I so adore, so striking and clean.

    I always visit Catholic cathedrals on my travels so it was nice to have visited this one in a non-Catholic country. As expected, it was very small and lacks the more traditional opulent spires and ceilings and giant stained windows. Still beautiful, nonetheless. Simple and sacred.

    This is actually one of my favourite churches in Singapore. On many occasions I have had my prayers answered.
    Several miracles have also taken place in my life and many of these defy logic so my next question is: how did this thing happen? I tell you the real GEM at this church is the presence of the BLESSED VIRGIN MARY!

    Sermons are bible study sessions. Many references made to the bible. Seats are comfortable. Do bring a jacket as it’s rather cold. Services are throughout the day 8:30am, 11:30am, 2:30pm. I think there’s a 5:30pm service as well. Various locations depends on where is most convenient for you. North Buona Vista (live), Marina Bay Sands, Causeway Point and Great World” City. One of the Churches, one should visit. Great experience.

    I went to mass here in October 2019. I had attended mass here twice in 2016. The Church of Our Lady of Lourdes has Saturday evening mass at 6 pm and 7:30 pm. I went to the 7:30 pm mass. The church has made some improvements since my last visit three years ago. There is air conditioning now. And there are screens with the words of prayers and songs. It was a very good experience. You can reach the church by taking the MRT to Rocher and then walking on Ophir Road.

    I attended the 8pm Penitential Service in this Church in town about a week before Christmas 2018. It’s conveniently located near 2 MRT stations, namely, Fort Canning and Dhoby Ghaut MRT stations.

    Years ago my parents brought my 3 brothers and I to attend Sunday Masses in this Church because we lived nearby. Since a number of years ago, the Church was renovated and I found it beautifully transformed. It’s worth a visit if you are in the vicinity.

    The Church of Saints Peter and Paul is a Roman Catholic church built between 1869 and 1870. It is located in Bugis (easy access with MRT, station Bugis)
    I found this church by accident and found interesting to visit.
    The history of the Church of Saints Peter and Paul is closely linked with the beginning and growth of the Chinese Catholic community in Singapore.
    Currently, the church is under the care of the Discalced Carmelite Friars. All masses are usually in English with a Mandarin service on Sunday mornings and a Cantonese service on Sunday afternoons.
    The inside is very nice and worth to have look.

    I love to visit various kind of church. After visiting National Museum Singapore, along the road to Fort Canning Park, you will see this church! It is one of the oldest Methodist church in Singapore, which survived after WWII. The interior of the sanctuary is stunning, all wooden decor and the spiritual ambience, it is just a wonderful place to worship. Solemn. WOW.

    I often like to stop into the smaller churches from the last century when I travel. This was a nice one just near the Dhoby Ghaut MRT station. It is on the way to Fort Canning Park

    This church was listed in the Vagabond Hotel walking tour of Little India. It was small and if you have time, good for a short visit. One the few pipe organs in Singapore was located inside and most likely played during masses.

    It was close to the Jelan Besar MRT Station.

    The church foundered by Dr Bejamin West who arrived in Singapore in 1889 and started services for Christian Chinese around the Talek Ater region. The first formal church was a wood and iron affair built around 1915. The current church was opened in 1925 and has been modified since.It is intersting outside but very plain inside located in a pleasant area at the start of Talek Ayer Street..

    It is a wonderful Mosque in Singapore. It is often visited by Men, Women & Children. It is calm & serene inside with an authentic antique look. In addition to five times prayers, daily lectures are held in different languages like, Malay, Tamil& English. There is also a nursery school & Education programme.There is a separate portion for ladies to pray. It has two floors. It is full& overflowing on Fridays & during Ramazaan Idd & Bakrid. It has a managing committee which includes a lady. Muslims can visit this place at anytime but for others, only on specific times. It is easily accessible and is near the Clementi MRT & Bus terminal. Visit and sooth your soul.

    I've walked passed this church many times but never really paid it much attention before. Constructed in the 1930s it's a fairly average looking brick building. I am yet to go inside. The outside can be admired sufficiently just by walking past.
