Who we are

We are a church that welcomes everyone. We hope you will consider joining us Sunday mornings for worship as we come together to praise the Almighty God.
We come together, not because we have to, but because we want to grow nearer to each other, nearer to God, and nearer to the Kingdom!

Our mission statement is: Introducing others to God through our actions, work, faith, prayers, love and community involvement.

History of Halifax United Methodist Church, Halifax VA

This weathered brick building dates back to ca 1818 when it was built as St. Marks Episcopal Church. Its interior is typical of that early period - white plaster walls, quaint box pews, center kneeling alter, clear glass windows pains and an elevated balcony.

The most notable exterior features of the building are the flat top belfry and the two carved double front doors. Inside the belfry is a bell which is said to be older than the building itself. Legend says that during the Civil War the bell was taken down to be melted and made into cannon balls. The war ended before the bell was destroyed but in the process returning it to the church it sustained a crack. The bell still hangs in the belfry but is not used. The clanking sound it makes is not pleasant to the ear.

On February 11, 1880 this church building was sold at public auction from the front steps of the Halifax County Courthouse for the sum of $395.00. It became the Houston Methodist Church and the name was changed to Halifax Methodist Church in 1920 when the town of Houston was renamed Halifax. For thirty-eight years, the Methodists shared this building with the Halifax Presbyterian Church until the Presbyterians built a church of their own.

In 1950, five classrooms, a furnace and 2 restrooms were added to the rear part of the building. Then, in 1972 another larger addition provided additional classrooms and a fellowship hall.

Our church is steeped in history. It has been kept with loving hands by many who have gone before us. We appreciate the historical significance of this beautiful old structure and strive to maintain its aesthetic appearance while making it relevant to our present time.
