Prinsep Street Presbyterian Church.
If you take a walk from Selegie to Bugis area, you might come across this red brick building, Princep Street Presbyterian Church. Its tower and side walls are all red brick! 😍 Took me close to 8 hours to complete.
Built in 1843 in Romanesque architecture by Rev. Benjamin Peach Keasberry, it was designated as a World Heritage Site on 12 January 2000. Never knew it was under conservation till now. It was previously known as the Malay Mission Chapel.
When I was sketching this church, I have the impression of living waters flowing out of it. As John 7:38 says “He who believes in Me, as the Scripture has said, out of his heart will flow rivers of living water”, believing that there will be many streams of rivers flowing out of this church due to their faith.
This sketch is part of the Red Brick Singapore series and a limited print card set of 5 sketches is also available.
