I have seen pictures of this church, and the Lalique glass, but seeing it for real was something else again. Unique is an overused word, but is justified here. Truly inspiring.

As far as I know, this is the only Lalique designed church that was installed by the craftsman himself at the time, so is a unique experience for one to see when in the island This may or nay not be your idea if Lalique...More

A very different but fairly plain church just off the road to St Helier. Free on site parking. Unless you stay for some refreshment at the on site cafe, a visit will only take 15 or 20 minutes.

Online photos don't capture the illuminated beauty of this place. The glasswork is beautiful and the overall effect is of quiet brilliance in its truest sense.The church has a peaceful and welcoming atmosphere.

Amazing to think that all the galss is Lalique. You can see the damage to one of the front doors when a German soldier threw a stone and missed his intended target.

Visited the Glass Church in September 2018. Was amazed by the ways in which the glass had been worked, had never heard of it before. Easy trip from St Helier on the fairly frequent service bus. So pleased to have visited, not something you would...More
