4th June 1889

Building work starts on St Aubin on the Hill

The Bishop of Guildford laid the foundation stone of St Aubin on the Hill, St Brelade’s Anglican church, on 4 June 1889. It took three and a half years from that point for construction work to be completed.

The current church wasn’t the first building on the site to have been used for worship, as it replaced an earlier structure that had become dangerous by 1888. Much of the granite that had been used in the construction of the earlier church was re-used in its successor.
