About
St. Mary’s is the cathedral church for the Anglican Diocese of West Malaysia. From one small congregation in a simple wooden building in the 19th century on the present site beside Dataran Merdeka, we have grown into ten diverse and active congregations that form our one cathedral community. We stand united in the Gospel truth that Jesus Christ, the only Son of God, died for our sins and rose again as Lord. Our mission at the Cathedral, is: To glorify God together in response to his grace by making disciples of Jesus Christ. We therefore seek to be a Gospel-centred, Bible-based, disciple-making community. We have: one goal – to glorify God one task – to make disciples of Jesus Christ one message – the Gospel of Jesus Christ

The history of the church dates to 1887, a simple timber building erected to accommodate Anglican worshippers in the area at the time. The foundation stone of the present building was laid in 1894, a larger church required to accommodate a growing congregation and consecrated in 1895. There have been various alterations and additions over subsequent years and in 1983 the church was proclaimed the Cathedral Church of St Mary the Virgin. It was designated a National Heritage Building in 2014. The church design is based on Early English Gothic architecture. We didn't manage to gain admittance on the day with exterior scaffolding being erected and the building closed to the public.

This is the major cathedral of Malaysia. At the heart of Kuala Lumpur, St. Mary's Cathedral is a relatively simple structure without much to offer tourists. Not too impressive for travelers.

Nice quaint English-style Church that is close to the main square and is worth visiting. There was a pushy woman at the entrance making sure everyone was wearing masks.

Very minimal decoration but nice peaceful place which shows colonial aspects close to Merdeka Square.

The Church seems quite modern from the outside but the interior is classic even though quite bare with not a lot of decoration.

This is located just next to Merdeka Square. We reached there just before dusk. Didn't have much time to explore.we saw it from outside. Location, ambience in the evening gives a very relaxed atmosphere. We have seen lot of group tours stopping over there.

Was expecting something quite grand and ornate, but could have perhaps walked by and not even noticed it, had we not been looking for it.

If you have the time this is a lovely Cathedral to visit. Unfortunately we chose a time when a service was going on but I was still able to appreciate how lovely this place was. Given time I would not hesitate going back to have a more detailed view round and take time to pray as you could sense the presence of God inside.

I have been attending its contemporary service known as SMACC since September 2017. Simply put, the congregations here are a clear, compassionate, loving, beautiful, and most of all biblical portrayal of the
bride of Christ with faithful and humble preachers of God's Word and Bible studies in and out.

If you are a Christian, this is surely a place to grow spiritually in love and knowledge of the Lord Jesus unto maturity and in godliness. Services here are available in many different languages - English (both liturgical and contemporary), Iban, Mandarin, Nepali and also Malay.

If you're a non-Christian, then this is a good platform to explore the Christian faith. You are very much welcome!

I have been attending St Mary’s cathedral contemporary (SMACC) since 2012. This is a reformed Bible centered church with a warm and welcoming congregation. There are 2 services on Sunday - SMACC1 at 10.30am and SMACC2 at 5 pm. There are also services available in different languages - Iban and Mandarin. If you’re looking for a church to visit while you’re here, just walk in to a service and have a chat over coffee with any of the pastors/regulars after!
