Visit St. Peter's Church to discover the oldest functioning Roman Catholic Church in Malaysia, completed more than 300 years ago. Constructed by the early Portuguese colonists in the first decade of the 18th century, the simple yet elegant structure features a combination of Eastern and Western architectural styles. One of the building's bells dates back to 1608 and was brought here from an older Dutch church. Stop by to admire the largely unadorned interior, or stand in front and take a few photos of this historically significant shrine.

St. Peter's Church reviews
Nice surrounding especially the church inside and outside as well. After Mass, the congregation are wonderful and nice to extend their hospitaility.

We passed by this Church when we were going to visit Villa Sentosa. Unfortunately the Church was closed but the white facade was very beautiful. Around the church there is also a very small garden.

Beautiful n serene. Sacred silence is practised before mass starts. Good place to pray n reflect
Attended sunset mass on 26th of Feb. The priest was acting like it was his concert/private show. He even played a worldly song from his phone that’s not a hymn in the middle of his sermon. He goes off script so many times. Never in my life have I ever seen a priest conduct a mass like that and I have been around the world in many churches since young. He was even talking about removing the splinter from one’s own eye before judging others but proceeded to put down the wardens in front of the whole congregation during his sermon by saying, “follow them, don’t just stand there like dolls” in a harsh tone. He’s a very vain priest. So self indulged. He’s not god he should remember. He knew the congregation would follow him and he did all sorts of really funny things. He even praised himself for having to do a lot of things because there was no choir that day. He was glorifying himself for serving. He forgot that being the leader or being first means always being the last and any good deed shouldn’t be paraded if it’s sincere, as mentioned in the bible. I wish I recorded it. The priest really should be investigated.
