Saint George’s memorial church

15 minutes away

Skindles Guesthouse is the perfect operating base to visit the Flanders Fields. Saint George’s memorial church is one of the many memorial things of WWI who are worth visiting.

In Ieper (Ypres) today there are two great memorials to the fallen of the First World War, perhaps the best known of which is the Menin Gate. St George’s memorial church however, equals this both in importance and in perpetuating a daily act of remembrance.

Saint George’s memorial church is an Anglican Church within the Church of England’s Diocese in Europe. Our Diocesan Bishop is the Lord Bishop of Gibraltar in Europe who shares his responsibilities with the Suffragan Bishop in Europe.

St George’s is a Pilgrimage Church for the many thousands of people who visit the World War One sites of the Ypres Salient Battlefields.  There is a small resident congregation who live in Ypres and surrounding area of Belgium and Lille(Northern France).
