Christ Church is a parish of the Anglican Church in Thailand within the Diocese of Singapore. It has both English- and Thai-language congregations. There are about 400 church members representing many different nationalities and denominational backgrounds. The liturgy is Anglican-Episcopal. The building is in an attractive Gothic style large enough to seat as many as 450 persons.
The Church Building:
The church is in a simple Gothic style. The nave and chancel are flanked by six pillars beyond which are north and south aisles. There are seven double doors in the walls of each aisle. The doors at the west end of the north aisle open on to a short covered passageway linking the church to the church hall. There is an apse at the east end in which is the sanctuary. At the west end, large double doors open on to a porch formed by the tower.
The nave including the chancel is 25.6 metres long with a roof rising to 13.7 metres. With the aisles, the width is 15.9 metres. An arch 7.3 metres high by 5.8 metres wide spans the entrance to the apse which is 6.4 metres deep by 6.7 metres wide. The tower is 5.8 metres square and 15.8 metres high. The church is built on a foundation of teak logs. The walls and pillars are made of brick covered with plaster. The roof is supported by teak timbers and is tiled. The floor of the nave and chancel is tiled. The sanctuary is paved with marble.
The organ, the only pipe organ in Thailand, is at the east end of the north aisle. The vestry is in the corresponding position in the south aisle. There is seating for two clergy and for 24 choristers facing the congregation. There is a free-standing altar at the crossing between the chancel and the nave. A teak screen, which originally separated the chancel from the nave, is now at the west end of the main body of the church. There is seating for 175 worshippers on wood and cane armchairs, with room for about 200 more if needed.
The east window depicts the Crucifixion. There are smaller windows on either side. In the west wall a rose window opens into the tower with lancet windows on either side. Each aisle has windows at the west end and is overlooked by seven clerestory windows. Mural plaques record the memory of past worshippers and benefactors.
