Overview
More
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.

The church is lovely inside and a graphic way to see the many parts of the British armed forces that served in this area. It is very poignant to see the names memorialised in the church by their families.

Do make a point of visiting this church.It is a brass plate polishers' dream. Every regiment that fought in the Ypres salient is represented here and it is the most moving place. If you can attend a service here on Sunday, so much the better....More

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.
