“Fascinating Small Church”
Reviewed 16 June 2014

This is a fascinating small church. The glass work which was paid for by the owners of the Boots chain is stunning. Although the church is very small and it only takes ten minutes go see round it I would say that you must visit it. On your trips round St Helier you will probably pass by, so make sure you stop and have a walk round the inside. You will not be dissapointed.

“Stunning Lalique glass adorned church”
Reviewed 15 June 2014

This church is small but well worth a visit.
If you are an art nouveau or art deco fan then this is a must, a most unusually decorated church, no coloured glass at all but still stunning and it's free.

“Unelievable! Not to be missed”
Reviewed 13 June 2014

Wow!! What a surprise when you walk in. We expected a few pieces of Lalique but what we saw was unbelievable!! The front entrance doors have two inset Lalique panels. Upon entering the church you are overwhelmed by the HUGE Lalique crusifix.
It is amazing that the Germans did not loot this during the war. Very informative literature, but no guide available, which would have been nice.
