Church of Sainte-Anne

The church of Sainte-Anne was built in 1912 by the architect Depuits. During the winter of 1944-45, the parish hall served as a refuge for the residents of the Malmedy hospice, victims of the German invasion. In the early 1950s, the church received stained glass windows by Jean Slagmuylder (1901-1968) based on drawings by Margot Weemaes (1909-1993).

Church of St. Job

The church of St. Job in Uccle dates back to the beginning of the 20th century. The castral chapel of the Lords of Carloo (dating from 1622) survived the fire of the castle of Carloo during the Brabant revolution (1789-1790), but was replaced in 1836 by a church, the first parish of Uccle, as the city of Brussels expanded southward. As Uccle had become a suburb of Brussels at the end of the 19th century and its population had grown considerably, this parish church was demolished and replaced in 1911 by the new Saint-Job church, the work of architect Jules Bilmeyer.

Église-Mémorial Orthodoxe Russe Saint-Job

St. Job's Memorial Church was built by emigrants who fled the Russian revolution. They started to raise funds in 1928 and were able to lay the foundation stone on 2 February 1936. The architect-painter Nicolai Istselenov was assisted by a committee. The patron saint, St James, was chosen because his feast day, 19 May, coincides with the birthday of Tsar Nicholas II, to whose memory the church is dedicated. More generally, it was to commemorate the sufferings of the imperial family and the victims of the revolution.

St. Peter's Church

St. Peter's Church is a neo-classical style church completed in 1782 by the architect Jean-François Wincqz. The present church replaces an old church from the 13th century. The church has a beautiful neo-classical tripartite facade combining red brick, white stone and bluestone: white ashlar divides the facade into several compartments of red brick, while bluestone is used for the frames of doors and bays. In the extension of the façade, the bell tower takes the form of a square tower with cut-off sides or an octagonal tower.
