A SMALL CHAPEL

This week's "church" is a small chapel on the Isle of Guernsey which was built by a local priest out of broken glass bottles.



Guernsey is one of the Channel Islands closer to France than the British Islands. They were occupied by the Germans during WWII. The Germans thought that the Allies would need the islands for an invasion of Europe and heavily fortified them. Most of the fortifications still exist.

The Channel Islands are not part of the UK but a British possession and one of Queen Elizabeth II title's is " Duke of Guernsey". this refers to the whole group of Channel Islands. They are the last remaining part of the Duchy of Normandy still held by the English.
