The church is in a tranquil spot right in the centre of town just off Victoria Street. It is being renovated at the moment externally and there is quite a bit of scaffolding around it, however, well worth having a look. It is peaceful inside and the grave yard offers an interesting history lesson. Look for George Onions grave. Very... More

This is a lovely church that is clearly well loved and cared for by a friendly group of locals. Its not a huge church but it is the main church in the island and has some lovely stained glass windows.

This stone church with a bell tower is one of the hidden gems on the island. Built in the 19th century, from local stone, the church is an interesting mix of architecture styles. The grave yard is a microcosm of Alderney's history with the first president of Alderney buried there. Make sure that you also visit the old church tower... More

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

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 .
