For 20 years, APC has been blessed to worship at Del Ray Baptist Church on Russell Road. It has been a great partnership, and the Lord has grown both congregations. Because of limited space, and a desire to expand our reach to the City of Alexandria, we now offer a second worship service at our West Braddock Road campus. (Learn more on the Our History page).
Despite worshipping at two times in two locations, we are one church family. The same pastor preaches the same sermon at both services. We have one board of elders, one board of deacons, one staff. We attend the same Covenant Fellowship Groups, social events, and Sunday night programs for adults, youth, and children.

We offer a blended style of worship at APC. Both worship services include contemporary praise music and traditional hymns, and the Russell Road service also features Adult and Youth choirs. But worship is not mainly about the music we sing, nor about listening to a sermon. Worship is a re-telling of the gospel — the glory of God, our brokenness and need for redemption, and the grace of God manifested in Jesus Christ who redeems us. Each Sunday, we have the opportunity to respond to these truths, because good worship is a dialogue. As God speaks to us, we respond to Him in song, prayer, adoration, and in service to one another.
It is important that you feel welcomed into our church family. When you visit APC, we invite you to join us after worship for a cup of coffee or tea. This is a great opportunity for you to meet others and learn more about our church. You will also find news about ministries, programs, and groups at the Information Booth.
A Newcomers' Fellowship Time is offered each month immediately following the Russell Road worship service. Please join APC staff and leaders in Room #104 to fellowship and learn more about the life of our church.
The Russell Road and West Braddock Road campuses are both close to Old Town Alexandria and Highway 395 (get directions to either location).
If you are in need of transportation to the church, we would be happy to arrange for someone to pick you up prior to worship at one of the Metro stops nearest the church. Call the church office by noon on Thursdays to request this assistance.
