This is a beautiful spot on the bay, overlooking the sea and lit up at night. The churchyard is well tended and the church itself is lovely - built in the same double/triple hall style but this has a small round tower. There is also a pretty fisherman’s chapel separate from the church which was the only part open when we visited due to Covid.

Lovely little church in St brelade Bay. Big church yard too. Access to the beach directly. Lovely stained glass windows and free to enter too.

A gem of a stop for tea and home made cakes with the added bonus of free parking in field next door. A delightful place to visit for the Church and surrounding views with added attraction of meeting the lovely ladies who prepare and serve the best cakes in Jersey.

This church is such a gem to go and visit and there is a fisherman's cottage next door so do have a look. It is situated in a nice and peaceful graveyard which is worth a visit. A very peaceful visit.

The frescoes on the fisherman’s chapel just next door and the ceiling of the church are beautiful, the views from the church yard overlooking the bay take your breath away. Sitting on the bench just as you come round from the chapel is an absolute sun trap and so peaceful.

Very sweet church with great views overlooking St Brelades. Did not visit inside but just walked around with access past it to the coastal path.

Being born and growing up in Jersey, this was my local church for school and community worship and events. I visited in Oct 2017 when holidaying on the island with my English wife and children and for old time's sake I wandered around the church yard and in to both the Fishermen's Chapel and the church. It wasn't until that point that I felt truly homesick for Jersey - since then I can think of nothing more than returning. The church, which I hadn't visited for around 28 or 29 years (school carol concert in the late 80s was the last time!) the beauty of the place is truly haunting and almost chilling, but in a delightful and positive way. The church and chapel are spotlessly clean and I bought a couple of souvenirs and a candle (there is an honesty box next to the entrance of the chapel). Solid stone rooves are quite rare but to find an unplastered one is amazing, aside from some new lighting and a couple of TV screens it hadn't changed a bit since my childhood. I realise that this is personal opinion, but I've dabbled with my own faith for many years and despite living within a hour's drive of Britain's holiest Christian site, I've never felt God's presence so much as I did when I was inside the church and chapel - I actually felt like someone was stood next to me, perhaps it was the homesickness, I don't know. I would thoroughly recommend a visit to this beautiful parish church and the Fishermen's Chapel a few feet away - the history is amazing and there is still the Perquage path leading out to the bay (a sanctuary for escaping but repentant criminals). I hope now to return to my childhood home and join the rest of my family, bringing my own family with me. If I can, I will make this my parish church. This is a very beautiful place.

This has to be one of the most picturesque spots on Jersey, together with the spectacular Corbiere Lighthouse.

Over the years we have visited this place many, many times. There is always a special, friendly atmosphere and a feeling of tranquillity to this place and that is before you enter the church. Together with the Fisherman’s Chapel (just next door) it should be on everyone’s list of places to visit.

It has been four years since we last visited and we couldn’t wait to return. The place is so calm and peaceful and a just a joy to walk round, standing in the graveyard and over looking the bay makes such a wonderful picture.

What we did miss were the friendly lady volunteers who opened the St Brelades Church Hall as a tea room, their cakes where scrumptious. It has now sadly closed due to lack of volunteers. We have often sat outside the church rooms in the mid to late afternoon sun overlooking the church and bay enjoying tea and cake and talking to many other visitors. This will always hold a special place in our Jersey memories.

The little church is worth having a look round, it is only a couple of minutes walk from the St Brelade Hotel. It is very old, I think the fisherman's chapel next to the church is 13th century. Some of the wall paintings are still visible and there is quite a lot of information inside the chapel. We only went to look because a friend who lives on Jersey pointed it out to us and told us the story. There is a "sanctuary path" running from the chapel down to the sea - apparently fugitives would seek refuge here, if they could get to the church the police were forbidden to arrest anyone in the chapel or on the sanctuary path. From there they would get down to a boat and make their escape to France.
