The United Methodist Church in Williamsburg
Students attending William and Mary have the wonderful opportunity to worship and belong to any one of three dynamic United Methodist churches in Williamsburg.
**Williamsburg United Methodist Church**
If you need a church home while you're at school, consider Williamsburg UMC. It is located on Jamestown Road next door to Wesley and right across the street from Jamestown South. They have services at 8:15 and 11:00 AM on Sundays, as well as several adult Sunday School classes which meet in between services. They have a variety of ministries you can become involved in. Williamsburg UMC welcomes all students and encourages their participation in the life of the congregation.
Williamsburg is regularly attended by Wesleyites. A group usually congregates in the Wesley living room around 10:40 AM to walk over and worship together.
**Wellspring United Methodist Church**
With its mission, “To care…as Jesus Cares”, Wellspring UMC has served the Williamsburg community for nearly 30 years. Wellspring is a welcoming church that values people over policy and empowers people for ministry in the name of Jesus Christ. As their website states, their pastor is Edward Hopkins, but every member of Wellspring is one of its ministers. Wellspring is well-known for its dynamic worship, community outreach programs, and diverse music ministries. The church is located just a couple of short miles from campus on Longhill Rd. and offers two Sunday services -- a blended traditional service at 8:45 AM and blended contemporary service at 11:00 am.

**New Town United Methodist Church**
New Town UMC is the newest United Methodist Church in Williamsburg. Their worship style is a blended experience of contemporary praise choruses and traditional hymns that have been rearranged so that they are more culturally familiar in music style. The prayer portion of their service is especially dynamic, and they intentionally seek to be hospitable to students. Interested? Want to know more?
