Our Story


Welcome to Saint Andrew’s United Methodist Church.  We hope that you’ll take a minute to explore all of the ministries and opportunities we offer and plan to visit us for worship, a study or a meal.

In 1968 Saint Andrew’s was born from the joining of two congregations.  Laurel Street United Methodist church, a historic downtown church that burned down and Grace United Methodist Church, a church plant located in the then remote outskirts of Henrico County.  It is from this marriage of both historic and new, city and country that Saint Andrew’s finds its foundation. 

Since that day Saint Andrew’s has continued to be a beacon in this community welcoming people to a true church home.   Over the years many people have found Saint Andrew’s to be a place that share in their joy and comfort them in their times of struggle. 

The life of our church is defined by three aspects of Christians living.  We seek to connect and build community in our church and in the world, we seek to unite for the common purpose of becoming a student and followers of Jesus Christ and we seek to serve one another, through our prayers, our presence our gifts, our service,  and our witness. 

We invite you to come and continue your journey with God here with us!
