This is a list of African Methodist Episcopal Churches, covering local churches of the African Methodist Episcopal Church and also local churches of the African Methodist Episcopal Zion Church, which is related.

The African Methodist Episcopal (AME) Church was founded by Richard Allen in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, in 1816, and split off African-American members from the white-dominated Methodist Episcopal Church denomination to make an independent denomination. It is based in the United States but seven of its 20 districts are overseas, including in Liberia, the United Kingdom, Angola, and South Africa.[1] Its Women's Missionary Service, an NGO, operates in 32 countries.[2]

The African Methodist Episcopal Zion (AME Zion) church evolved as a division within the Methodist Episcopal Church denomination. The first AME Zion church was founded in 1800. Like the AME Church, the AME Zion Church sent missionaries to Africa in the first decade after the American Civil War and it also has a continuing overseas presence.

The AME and AME Zion churches are in full communion (along with the United Methodist Church, the African Union Methodist Protestant Church, the Christian Methodist Episcopal Church, and the Union American Methodist Episcopal Church.
