St. George's became a civilian church after the British troops left Singapore in 1971. It was gazetted a national monument by the National Heritage Board of Singapore on 10 November 1978.
The red brick building has a unique and beautiful architecture with many windows with timber louvres and open arch windows. it is non air-conditioned and has a high ceiling ensuring good ventilation. The hand sewn cross-stitched cushions placed behind the long benches are lovely and consist of many different designs. It is a calm, serene and peaceful building. It is opened in the daytime.
The lychgate in front of the church is a replica of the one that was put up in 1952. There are two benches inside the gate. The lychgate is made of timber with a tiled roof.

Saint George’s Church is located on a little slope off the Napier Road / Holland Road Junction, across the road from the Botanical Garden. There was previously a public nine hole golf course nearby but it is now a construction site.

The Church is sited on a elevation, in a area also known as Dempsey Hill which is further down the road.

The Building was built in 1910 initially as a garrison church for the British army based in Singapore. In the evening when the lights are on, the red brick church wall project a very warm feel and with the international mix congregation you may think that you are in a European City.

If you are a tourist visiting Singapore, you may include a pit stop at Saint George’s Church after visiting the Botanical Garden, and end your walk at Dempsey Hill for lunch / coffee or dinner.
