St Andrews Presbyterian Church, Kuala Lumpur

We are part of the Presbyterian Church in Malaysia (Gereja Presbyterian Malaysia), which is a member and part of the World Communion of Reformed Churches (WCRC). WCRC has its roots in the 16th-century Reformation led by John Calvin, John Knox, Ulrich Zwingli and the earlier reforming movements of Jan Hus and Peter Valdes. It is the largest association of Reformed churches in the world and the third largest Christian communion or denomination in the world, after the Roman Catholic Church and the Eastern Orthodox Churches. Proponents of the Reformed and Presbyterian church governing structure in the 16th and 17th centuries did not regard it as an innovation but as a rediscovery of the apostolic model found in the New Testament, ie that of the original Christians.

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)

  • In the history of God for about 100 years, there are three services on Sunday. Don't get too close to the city center, but make it quieter and more peaceful.

  • I went to this church not really often but it's a good church. It had pipe organ and the pipe organ used in the traditional service (at 7.30 am). They also had contemporary service at 11.30 am. There is also Indonesian services every evening at 5 pm.
  • I had the strangest experience with this church. On a Sunday evening my husband and I tried to go in and was stopped and spoken to very rudely by the security guard at the gate. He was refusing to let us in. Saying that only on Sunday people can go in. And we kept telling him that it intact was Sunday but he said nobody is allowed in the church. I was stern with him and went in anyway. Nobody was around but a gentleman who was maybe taking the Sunday school class who came up to us and confirmed that nobody new is allowed into the church. This was instructed to the security guard as well. I told him that this is a CHURCH. Isn't that the whole idea of a CHURCH. To keep the doors open for anyone to come in and 've a part of the service? To which the man just laughed. I am appalled. I have never been to a CHURCH anywhere in the world that refuses followers in on a Sunday for service. This is complete madness and wish to never set foot in this horrid place again
