About Us

The Parish Church of St Saviour is of fundamental importance to the heritage of Jersey being amongst the oldest and most significant historic buildings in the Island.

St Saviour's Parish Church (St Sauveur de L'Epine) originates from the 11th/12th Century with later alterations, enlargements and restorations from 13th - 20th Century. The earliest known recorded reference to St Saviour's Church is in 1145; by tradition, the church was consecrated on 30th May 1145.

The church has been central to the life of St Saviour's Parish Community for hundreds of years and provides important insights into medieval and later society. The church building gives insight into religious activity, the local economy, artistic endeavour and technical achievement. Set into the wall on the east boundary of the church is a Victorian Post Box 1861-71 (Post Box No.15), cast by Smith and Hawkes, one of only 4 such examples in Jersey.
