Historic church with old cemetery on property. Visitors are seated in George Washington's box. FDR and Winston Churchill also attended here. Female minister was very good speaker and the service was very uplifting. 8 AM was not very crowded, not sure about later. Coffee served after service in church hall. Very welcoming place.

Lovely church with lots of history and people attending the church were happy to share its history. Worth a short visit.

We were here a few days before Easter and found Christ Church to be a beautiful old church with a number of interesting features. George Washington worshiped there, and you can sit in his box pew. There is a beautiful high pulpit. The wonderful guide who was on duty let us go up in it and take a picture. It was fun. The large windows bathe the sanctuary in a sunny glow. Well worth a look.

We were so welcomed here. The docent could not have been nicer; she welcomed us in, told us the whole history of the church, had us sit in the Washington's pew, etc. She was great with my Middle School aged kids, who were very interested in everything she had to say. Don't miss the walk around the cemetery outside. Most of all, don't miss this stop on your tour of Alexandria!

Nice to see where Washington and Lee went to church. Tough to get a good external picture, suggest from rear of property.
