As if airlifted from England's home counties, this pretty stone church sits like a relic of colonial times and monument to Christian worship, on a hillside high above Sandakan. Its construction reportedly involved prisoner labourers dragging huge stones across the Bornean jungle. The Church avoided major damage during WWII. Notice its stunning stained-glass windows donated by Australians to commemorate the 60th anniversary of the end of this conflict.

Although the church is officially off Jln Puncak, many people call the street 'Church Rd'.
