About Us


Methodism first came to Alderney in 1787 – and there’s been a presence ever since. We're an enthusiastic church community seeking to worship God, and also to serve the island community as best we can.

At the moment our church community numbers about 30 and we usually have about 20 people at church on a Sunday. 


Through the Week

We run a number of activities through the week – you’ll find details for the current week on our home page – which include:

Ecumenical Prayer Group – meeting in St Anne’s Anglican Church

Bible Study – we follow a study programme, usually for about eight weeks at a time, you’re welcome to ‘dip in’ and try it

Prayer Group – weekly prayers for our island community

Lunch-2-Gether – a lunch club held twice a month for those island residents who live alone

Coffee Morning – every Friday morning from 10.30am in our church hall – everyone welcome!



Our Minister

Our Minister is Rev. David Stretton. He and his family have been with us since May 2022.  Before arriving on Alderney, David was in Arnside in Cumbria, and before that in Macclesfield in Cheshire.

Rev. David is part-time which means that he usually works mornings and not afternoons – when he can usually be found tinkering with his Morris Minor!

As with all Methodist churches, the church is run by a church council and served by two church stewards – Penny Ash and Ian Carter.
