The Lalique features in the interior of the church were clean and beautiful to behold. They caught the light and gave the interior a whitish aura. Very attractive and worth a short visit.

This must be the only 'glass' church in the world? Created by the widow of Mr 'Boots' (pharmacy fame) using large glass carved panels by Lalique, the famous French designer. It is really beautiful to see and well worth a visit.

Worth a visit, truly peaceful and some wonderful glass. There is parking available as well as being a a bus route from St Helier. Think about a walk in the park next door as well.

THis was a real surprise as it is not well advertised. The exterior is very ordinary, but inside, the Lalique glass structures and the back lighting make an amazing sight. So much of the furniture and the screens are made of glass especially moulded with reference to the Jersey Lilly. Having seen Lalique glass many times as vases and small... More

Check the opening times before you visit because it is not always open. It's gone through changes over the years and the more recent Lalique glass work is lovely.

Not just a glass font but many other parts of the church have examples of Rene Laliquegalss work...doors, angels. Doesn't look much from the outside but really impressive inside. A good, free car park next door. This is a working church, so there are regular services, church clubs and a small refreshment area.

If you like the work of Lalique, then you must go. Described in a brochure as having a glass font did not do it justice. Yes there is a glass font, but also windows, angels and screens. Tiny but perfect. Beware: seems to be on coach tours, but only for 5 minutes, so they leave quickly!see this. Described in one... More

This is a very small, but nice little church. It offers something a bit unusual (though I do think the more gothic looking churches are beautiful anyway) to most churches you come across. The glass carvings are beautifully done. However, I was led to believe that all of the church was made out of glass and this isn't the case... More

This is just a small church that looks nothing from the outside but when you step inside wow the glass work is incredible. You don't have to stay long but definitely worth popping in if you're on your way to another place just to say you've seen it
