If you plan ahead, you can get tickets to join the congregation on remembrance day. (This is on the 11th not the nearest Sunday as in the UK). The service was very moving and afterwards you can march along to the Menin Gate for the 11:00 ceremonies.

Beautiful church with obvious links to the Armed Services with the flags hanging around the walls and brass Memorial Plaques affixed to the walls in great numbers. We attended the Remembrance Day Service prior to the parade to The Menin Gate this year.

Here is a place where you can just sit and think of the past and how lucky we are and what others gave for our freedom. There are cushion and plaques that are in memorial of different regiments. You can also find information leaflets there too.

Venue for a concert on our tour of Belgium - great sound and very emotional singing in such a place or remembrance. It also did give us a chance to look round the church and realise the enormity of the Great War and how it involved so many different people from so many different countries and the sacrifices that were...

Whether you are visiting Ieper as a historical tourist or a relative tracing your family member on the Menin Gate the church is an excellent place for quiet reflection and possibly also to meet up with others following WW1 memorials, cemeteries and battlefield trail.

This is a quiet place to reflect on the fate of the many 1000's who lost their life in the Great War. There are moments to most of the different sections of French, British and Commonwealth armies. Everyone should take a few moments here to help ensure we never forget those who lost their life's.

We visited St George's Memorial Church to witness the "laying up of standards" of two Royal British Legion branches. The Church is filled with commemorations to various regiments/units of the British forces and to amazing individuals like Violette Szabo. There are stained glass windows dedicated to the RAF/RFC, South Irish Horse, Royal Irish etc etc. There is a huge amount... More

Not so easy to find, if you find the front of the nearby Cathedral walk to the end of the square & St George's is on the corner opposite the theatre. Do look at the hand made cushions on the chairs representing so many regiments, very impressive and brass plates on the walls.

This church contains many tributes to the fallen from regiments and remembrances from many schools. It is a peaceful place, and not gloomy.
