About
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.

We had been regular visitors to Ieper before the Pandemic. Attended a Sunday service and were made to feel very welcome. A chair for anyone of any faith or none to pause and reflect on what happened in that area and browse the hundreds of memorials to individuals and military units .

Beautiful little church/chapel which we wandered into by accident even though it was just across the street from where we were staying. Would have liked to have attended a service there but guess we just missed it and we were on our way to Tournai.

This church is just a short walk from the Flanders Museum, and was built to honour the fallen of WW1. Its in a different style with only one main stained glass window, and so its very bright, and not very big. It a place of remembrance for regiments families as well as some note of pupils who attended certain schools and died at Ypres.
All the chairs have embroidered kneeling pads that ae in regimental colours. Plaques on the walls make interesting readings regarding regiments and others which are from families of the fallen .
It's a place to visit as its very personal .

This church was a happy discovery as I walked about Ieper during a day trip to visit the WWI sites in the town and surrounding area. The site is an impressive memorial to the hundreds of thousands of lost British soldiers in the Ypres Salient, and is lovingly decorated and maintained by those who keep the memories of their lost relatives and countrymen alive. Just off the main square area, it isn't a major detour from the museum and cathedral and worth a short visit.

Saint George's Memorial Church is situated very near to St. Martin's Cathedral and is, as the name suggests, a Memorial Church. It looks very British and is full of memorials and banners apertaining to WW1

We visited the church to see the interior and read the various memorial tablets. We later returned to take part in Sunday evening Evensong, although I do not regularly worship in an Anglican church I was still made extremely welcome. The lovely Lay Reader, when discovering we visited Ieper regularly to visit a family grave, included my two Great Uncles killed in The Great War in the prayers which meant a lot.

Tucked away and easy to miss but don’t ! An English church built around 1927 to honour the fallen. Interesting inside and well worth a visit. Seems odd an English church in Ypres. Tell you how it came about inside

A place that remembers all who died in WW1 from general to private.......... to see the cushions on the chairs of so many regiments , some no longer in existence, the names of so many who gave their lives....very emotional........ an British country church in Belgium........ a unique and moving experience
