Christ Church Melaka (Malacca)
Christ Church Melaka
Christ Church Malacca is an 18th-century Anglican Church in Malacca, Malaysia. Christ Church Melaka is the oldest functioning Protestant Church in Malaysia. This Church is within the jurisdiction of the Lower Central Archdeaconry of the Anglican Diocese of West Malaysia.
Christ Church Melaka was built in the Dutch Colonial architecture style, and it is laid out in a simple rectangle of 82 feet (25 m) by 42 feet (13 m). The ceiling rises to 40 feet (12 m) and is spanned by wooden beams carved from a single tree. The roof is covered with Dutch tiles, and the walls were raised using Dutch bricks built on local laterite blocks and then coated with Chinese plaster. The church floors are paved with granite blocks originally used as ballast for merchant ships.
The original Dutch windows were reduced and ornamented after the British takeover of Malacca, and the porch and vestry were built only in the mid-19th century.
