Masland Methodist Church

Masland Methodist Church is easily the most elegant church in Sibu town. It is conveniently located at the town centre along Island Road

The church has just finished been refurbished and declared open on 16th August 2009 since renovation work started in December 2006. This mega project has been dubbed as "Hoover Project" which comprises the church, multi purpose building called the Hoover Mission House and an open space called Hoover Square.

I had never step my feet into the church since the renovation had been completed as it is mainly locked and only open for church service. It is said the interior was installed with a new audio visual system and can accommodate about 1,700 people.

This magnificent church will surely be another landmark for Sibu town. If I remember correctly, this will be probably the 4th renovation the church had undergone since 1905. I used to study at the primary school behind this church as well as attending this church until I was 15 years old.

Sibu population is around 200,000 and probably still dropping.

It's hard to pin point the main religion here as there are an equal share of Methodist, Roman Catholic, Buddha and Muslim here
