About Our Church
It is a joy to welcome you to St. Andrew's Presbyterian Church of Kuala Lumpur! As we celebrate our centenary anniversary in 2017, we are both mindful and grateful for God's abundant faithfulness to us for 100 years.
We invite you to visit us in person when you are able. Whether you are already a follower of Jesus, or are just beginning to explore who Jesus is and what it means to believe in Him, it would be a delight to welcome you to either of our Sunday worship services or at any of our other activities.
St Andrews Presbyterian Church is a multi-cultural community with a broad and diverse congregation both in terms of its focus and membership. It is made up of expatriates with foreign passports who are in the country for work, education or a multitude of other reasons, as well as a growing number of nationals who have been internationalized through substantial overseas experience. It is our common faith in Christ that unites us.
We are grateful for what God is doing at this moment in our history. We have a thriving children's and youth ministry, with about 100 young people and many dedicated volunteers. Through our mission outreach we are ministering to the indigenous people of Malaysia as well as refugees who have migrated here. Our worship includes both a traditional and a contemporary service, plus an Indonesian language service.
At St. Andrew's you will meet many warm and caring people from all of the world who have discovered the wonder of God's love, so come join us!
May God's grace and love be with you,
Our Church Community
Who We Are
St. Andrew’s consists of people from many nations. We have existed as a congregation since 1902, building the present structure in 1918 and continuing as a witness for Jesus Christ, being disrupted only by the Japanese invasion during World War II.
St. Andrew’s is the home for a culturally rich and vibrant congregation including local members and worshippers from the expatriate community. While part of the Presbyterian Church of Malaysia, St. Andrew’s welcomes many other denominations as the International Church of Kuala Lumpur.
Our motto is “All One In Christ Jesus.” We are worshippers together from every continent of the world!
Who is Saint Andrew? Andrew, like his brother Simon Peter, was a fisherman. He became a disciple of John the Baptist, but when John pointed to Jesus and said, "Behold the Lamb of God!" Andrew immediately understood that Jesus was greater. And, at once, he left to look for Jesus. Jesus knew that Andrew was walking behind Him, and turning back, He asked, "what do you seek?" When Andrew answered that he would like to know where Jesus lived, Our Lord replied, "Come and see." Andrew had been only a little time with Jesus when he realized that He was truly the Messiah.
From then on, he chose to follow Jesus. Andrew was thus the first disciple of Christ - the first Christian. Some called Andrew, “The Introductor to Christ,” because he is also the first to have brought others, including Peter, to Jesus. We might also call him the first Christian evangelist. On each of the three occasions that he is mentioned as an individual in the Bible, it is because he was instrumental in bringing people to Jesus. Just as Andrew was the first of the Apostles, so his feast is taken to be the beginning of the Church year. The First Sunday of Advent is defined to be the Sunday on or nearest his feast (although it could equivalently be defined as the fourth Sunday before Christmas)
Here on our website, you'll find information about our church family and about opportunities for worship, fellowship, education and service. Whether you’re a spiritual seeker just beginning to ask questions about God, or a committed Christian, you can find a home at St. Andrew’s. Come and join us if you’re in Kuala Lumpur. You matter to us because you matter to God!
God Bless You.
