From the digitised map of National University of Singapore, i did an overlay of the 1983 and present 2021 map. From there you can make out the location of a Church / Chapel. With the Tengah Estate and HDB development taking place, it will be a matter of time this place disappears and be truly forgotten.

The Church is no longer there, but the concrete steps that lead up to the chapel still remains and on its grounds is a cemetery with some tombs remaining. One of the exhumed tombs even have the name of the tomb mason that constructed the tomb (Lim Choon Seng of 81 Selegie Road). The Anglican church has moved to Farrer Road and is known today as St. John's Chapel at 111 Farrer Road.
