Alfred John Church (29 January 1829 – 27 April 1912) was an English classical scholar.
Church was born in London and was educated at King's College, London, and Lincoln College, Oxford. He took holy orders and was an assistant-master at Merchant Taylors' School from 1857-70. He subsequently served as headmaster of Henley-on-Thames Royal Grammar School from 1870–73, and then of King Edward VI School, Retford from 1873-80. From 1880 until 1888 he was professor of Latin at University College, London.
While at University College in partnership with William Jackson Brodribb, he translated Tacitus and edited Pliny's Letters (Epistulae). Church also wrote a number of stories in English re-telling of classical tales and legends for young people (Stories from Virgil, Stories from Homer, etc.). He also wrote much Latin and English verse, and in 1908 published his Memories of Men and Books. Church died in Richmond, Surrey.
