Planning your visit
Welcome to St Alfege Church in the heart of one of London’s most vibrant and fascinating areas. From its beginnings Greenwich has been a place which has received and welcomed new residents and visitors.
This sacred place has been at its centre since St Alfege was martyred in here in 1012. We offer worship for all ages which is uplifting and this involves many in its preparation. We keep this beautiful church open to visitors, worshippers and those who need time for rest and reflection throughout the week.
Please note the crypt is currently closed during the building works and is not accessible to visitors. The crypt will be opening on a regular basis as part of the Heart of Greenwich Place and People project when all the building works have been completed (November 2019) and interpretation installed towards the end of the year.
Attending a service
Everyone is welcome to attend our acts of worship - we have a number of different services throughout the week.
If you do not wish to attend a service then you are very welcome to explore St Alfege Church. The church is open every day between 11am and 4pm (noon on Sundays). Visitors are welcome to explore quietly during services. St Alfege Church plays an active role in the community and occasionally we may be closed or restrict some areas because a service or an event is taking place. All closures are noted on our home page so please check before visiting.
You are welcome to take photographs for your personal use in the church. Photography is not permitted during services or events where specified. See our Photography page for more details.
