“The highlight of my holiday!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 7, 2015

Thank you to Pastor Wellesley and his congregation for making us feel so welcome and for encouraging us to be part of a wonderful service. No words can really say how special this was to my son and me - simply thank you for embracing our presence.

“Historical African-American Church”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 17, 2014

This was my second visit to Alfred Street Baptist Church. It is a spiritual, dynamic, proud, progressive, historical, impressive, warm and beautiful church. Alfred Street has a proud history in Alexandria. The congregation has been really warm and welcoming each time I have visited. I could tell the congregation cares for each other and work together to make their church successful in all its ministries/missions. It would be my choice to attend if/when I am in DC/Northern VA for a visit and looking for a church.

“Dynamic Pastor, excellent choir”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 21, 2014

I used to attend this church years ago until they had several interim pastors. In the past year I have gone back to visit several times. The pastor has always had a great sermon. All the choirs are fantastic. Your soul will certainly be fed here and this is a teaching church with something for everyone.

“Alfred Street Baptist Church traces its origins to 1803”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 20, 2014

My wife and I visited Alfred Street Baptist Church while taking a guided tour of Old Town Alexandria. This historic church itself is beautiful and located in a nice area. Alfred Street Baptist Church traces its origins to 1803, during the period when Thomas Jefferson served as the third president of the United States.
