In a land of Islamic and Buddhist beliefs, there's a strong line of CoE Christianity running through, brought in by Western missionaries. Looking almost out of place, this church is only about 100 years old. It's a nice building, but nothing special. Inside there are a few nice touches, including some recent stained glass windows. The church is only open on certain days and there's a R10 donation expected.

We went here with a tour group, the lady who met us was extremely informed on the history of the church and I learnt a lot. There is a remembrance book of all that died there in the death march, many who rested at the church on the way to the camp, very sad!

The attitude of the Indian lady in charge of ticketing, book shop and gate keeper for the historical church was rude; not expected in a church.

Firstly, she was offended when we didn't see the opening hour signage on the side entrance.

Then, when we asked about the church building information. The information provided was inaccurate and incomplete (we learned a full story through internet).

We (3 of us) felt rushed and almost compelled to leave after a few minutes inside the church.

We were interested in the history of the building itself, and asked her for relevant books. When we were back in the book shop. She gave us two translation of the church history, which was not what we want. She removed them in a haste. At the same time, I asked for the price of the tourism pamphlet. She said "it's free" and I took it but the displeasure on her face almost read "cheap".

Then we were gestured to be led out of the bookshop without an explanation, which is all very rude.

Easy to locate and parking space is spacious. There is a school nearby as well. During my visit it was under construction, unfortunately I wasn't able to visit inside.

The church was initiated by Rev. W.H. Elton in 1888 and the construction was completed in 1906. It is the oldest stone church in Sabah. It was designed by New Zealander Mr. B.W. Mountfort who designed the church based on Christchurch Cathedral in New Zealand, which was badly damaged in the 2011 earthquake. The church was built with stone, with mix of ironwood timber and quite rare to see stone church in Malaysia. The building is well kept and very calm and peaceful when sitting inside the church.

If you are from a Christian country, this will seem just like an average church. However, this is actually one of the loveliest churches in Southeast Asia (excluding Philippines). The brick exterior is beautiful and there are gorgeous stained glass windows inside.

The Stone Church is still standing tall on top of a hill within the local community village. Getting inside provides us with the quietness & calmness that we are searching for to rejuvenate our soul.

Unfortunately it was closed when we were here - but the sneak look through the windows gave the impression that it’s a nice church

Discovered this church through the Heritage Trail Map. Looks like an old Anglican Church. It was closed during my visit, but the premised was kept clean. Interesting piece of old architecture

This is something which you might thought to find only in Europe, but it is really in Sandakan. The building itself is wonderful to see from the outside
