Grouville Church

Grouville Church is one of the twelve ancient parish churches in the island of Jersey; it is sited on the east of the island in the parish of Grouville.

Name

Grouville Church is dedicated to Saint Martin of Tours under the name "St Martin de Grouville", thus distinguishing it from St Martin's Church, where the dedication is to "St Martin le Vieux"; this indicates that Grouville was founded some time after the foundation of St Martin's.
