Christ Church, Air ItamChrist Church, Air Itam (4 June, 2011)

Christ Church (GPS: 5.40512, 100.28137) is an Anglican church along Jalan Air Itam in Air Itam, Penang. It is located near the Chinese Anti-War Memorial, on the main road between the Air Itam Roundabout and the police station.

Christ Church traces its history back to 1962, when the St. Paul's Church at Macalister Road started its outreach work in Ayer Itam. It began at a house which was known as the Ayer Itam Mission House. There, a kindergarten was established which church services being held in Hokkien on Sunday evenings.

The present Christ Church building was completed in 1983. It was built on the lot previously occupied by its former premises. The Hokkien congregation continued to have its services there on Sunday evenings while a fairly large English congregation branched out from St Paul's Church, holding worship services on Sunday mornings. Both congregations are under the pastoral care of the vicar, the Reverend Christopher Tan, who is mobilising the laity in building up the Body of Christ, the church.

The Tadika St. Paul is a kindergarten that is still being conducted at the premises of Christ Church.
