Penang Isle: Wesley Methodist Church

Wesley Methodist Church 01
The Wesley Methodist Church in Penang, located at the junction of Larut Road and Burma Road, is the oldest Methodist Church in Malaysia.
The English architecture style Church building was built in 1911 and its cornerstone was laid on 26 December the same year. The land on Anson and Burma Roads was exchanged for Larut Road, where the Church was to be built.

  1. Beautiful church! I have been to Malaysia twice and love it, such a beautiful country. I was so blessed by the women I met while speaking at a women’s conference outside of KL.
