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.
