Set on the corners of Alfred and Duke Streets (about 4 blocks south of King Street), this beautiful church stands as a tribute to the faith of 19th century denizens of Alexandria. This is an expanding congregation within a large building that has grown over the years to accommodate its membership. Explore the sanctuary and classroom building to appreciate this... More

A wonderful religious institution in the Washington, DC area. Led by Rev. Dr. Howard-John Wesley, it has ministries for people of all ages and interests. Parking can be a little tough because the church is in the heart of busy Old Town (corner of Duke and Alfred Streets), but it is definitely worth the visit.

My husband and I were visiting Alexandria, VA from Ohio. We had been headed for a different church we had seen on the Internet for their Easter Sunday Sunrise Service. We were running a little late, and saw a lot of people going into this church. We thought let's just go here. Oh wow, we had no idea what a... More

We stopped in here on Good Friday. We didn't stay for the whole service, but the members of the congregation were so welcoming and friendly. They really made a difference in our vacation. Before the service several members of the church were playing the hand bells, Wow! Just wow! They were wonderful! My kids were mesmerized and wanted to stay... More

Pastor Howard John Wesley is a phenomenal pastor and preacher. He's charismatic, very intelligent, and spot on with his theological knowledge. The environment is warm and inviting. The choirs are excellent. There are ministries offered to serve almost anyone.

I have visited this church several times and always enjoy the music portion of the service. Everyone there is very friendly and welcoming. The service is quite long compared to what I am accustomed to so I don't stay for the entire service; but the pastor is very good and I enjoy my visits for their many special concerts and... More
