The Methodist Church in Singapore
Built between 1870 - 75, the Middle Road Churchwas first known as The Christian Institute. Here,young men gathered for recreational activities and daily worshipmade possible by Charles Phillips, its trustee. He invited theMethodists to use it from 1885 until it was formally transferredto them in 1892. It housed the Methodist Girl's School until1900 and was shared with a group of Straits Chinese formedby Methodist missionaries in 1890.

When it was officially inaugurated as the MalayChurch in 1894, it became the first Straits ChineseMethodist Church in Singapore. It remained here until 1929when it moved to Kampong Kapor and is now knownas the Kampong Kapor Methodist Church.
