Overview

Tucked away almost and across the road from the Cathedral is this unique church built to honour the British and Commonwealth fallen of both world wars but principally the First World War. Built in 1927 it remains a superb place of remembrance and somewhere where families and individuals connected to 'the fallen' in Flanders Fields can find a moment of quiet, calm and reflection. There is a small resident congregation who live in Ypres and surrounding area of Belgium and Lille (Northern France). All are welcome to our regular Sunday services held in the Anglican tradition and you will be sure of a warm welcome.

This was a cool sanctuary from the very hot sun on the day we were walking around Ypres. The church was bombed to its foundations in WW1 but has been lovingly rebuilt to its original state. Well done Ypres.

Lovely little church that crams in so much. The windows, seats kneelers all have connection to the conflict.

The venue is located in the city centre of Ypres near the central square. The church is small. The interior is quite impressive with a lot of brass plaques in memory of the British soldiers who fought in WW I in Ypres.
