The following is an extract from a talk given by church member and architect Richard Heald, at a dinner held to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the re-consecration of St. George's in 1946, and the 25th anniversary of the admittance of St. George's into the Diocese of Singapore in 1971.

"Architecture is about people and as we've heard tonight, St. George's too is about people, and the people that have gone before us here. But the architecture is also about the three dimensional form of buildings - about the joining of complex and subtle shapes in an honest and sophisticated way to form something that has a function. At the same time it is about all the details that go together to enhance that form and to tie all those functions together. And St. George's Church is a classic illustration of this. But let me give you a little background.
