While the Church has been closed, we have been busy executing the Capital Plan for improvements. The Water Intrusion Project is almost 75% complete and should be concluded within the next two weeks. Additionally, some painting projects were completed in key high traffic areas during this time of closure.  To view pictures of work completed, click here.

The church doors have been locked and people should refrain from entering the building. This includes all individuals with keys.

A professional company has been contracted to clean and sanitize main areas of the building. It is anticipated that this work will be completed within 3 to 4 days.

Dear Friends of Williamsburg United Methodist Church,

In addition to cancelling our worship services for the next two Sundays, all church operations (and programs that use the building including KMO, ECMS, Respite, Scouts, AA, etc.) will be suspended starting Monday, March 16, until further notice. Please check here for updates.

Are you sick, in quarantine, need help? We want to make sure that our community remains connected, even when illness or quarantine requires physical separation. Please complete this form so we are aware of your circumstances by clicking here.

We appreciate your continued financial support of WUMC during this time of absence from church. You may give online at our church website by clicking here or send your contribution by mail. Thank you for your generosity as we continue to serve Jesus Christ in historic Williamsburg and beyond.

We learned that a member of our Respite Care family has tested positive for the COVID-19 virus. We have informed members of our Respite family and volunteers and have been in contact with the Virginia Department of Health.

Please be in prayer for our church, our community, and the world during this health crisis.

Grace and Peace,

Bill Jones,

Senior Pastor
