Make sure you read the church pamphlet to get the interesting history. So much history there including a 17th C bible returned in the 20th C. For a small island it is impressive.

We were invited to view the bell ringers practice. A very friendly and enthusiastic group of people. Experienced bell ringers can join in if they would like

Interesting to look around and admire. A quiet and peaceful place with some interesting graves e.g. Elizabeth Beresford!

As a church bellringer, I can only rate the lovely peal of 12 that I had the privilege of ringing on 13 April, along with 11 other ringing friends of mine. The bells were a lovely ring, and it was a shame that we didn't quite do them full justice.

So peaceful now, after the Germans defiled it in WW2. I take photos of the Commonwealth War Graves to go on line. I found and photographed 6 out of the 7 names given to me by the CWG Commission....some so young.

There are not a lot of sites in Alderney to visit. This Scott designed church gets more attention than it would elsewhere due to this it is ,not ,I would say one, of his finest efforts .

Like so many churches in the Channel Islands, this elegant church surrounded by a graveyard it strikingly beautiful. This particular church is larger with an even more austere atmosphere. It makes for a lovely stop while shopping along Victoria Street.

Enjoyed viewing this interesting large church, 'The Cathedral of the Channel lslands' listening to the bells and strolling in the beautifully kept churchyard, full of primroses, bluebells and blue irises.
