This bit of history is part of #135ThingsAboutMCS:
The first Chinese Methodist Church in Singapore, Telok Ayer Chinese Methodist Church, operated out of a rented shophouse when it was first established in 1889. The church building at Telok Ayer Street (pictured) was built in 1924, and its unique blend of Chinese and Western architecture can be seen in the pagoda roof. This building served as a refuge throughout the Japanese Occupation, and is a gazetted National Monument today.
