Wallingford UMC is a vibrant progressive faith community, committed to living out Jesus' call to love and serve our neighbors. As the first United Methodist "Reconciling" or "Open and Affirming" Congregation in the Northwest, we have always affirmed that all persons are of sacred worth and welcome all people regardless of race, color, sexual or affectional orientation. You are welcomed and affirmed and accepted for who you are, as God made you.

Newcomers will find that Wallingford UMC is a welcoming space for all people. We aim to create space that honors the Methodist tradition, yet allows for fresh expressions of worship through word and song.

There is no specific dress code, so come in what makes you feel comfortable. Street parking is available in the neighborhood. 

There are usually Adult Education and youth classes at 9:00AM on Sundays. Contact the church if you would like an updated schedule of Sunday School offerings.

The worship service begins at 10:00AM and usually lasts about an hour. Our services focus on singing hymns, participating in liturgy together, and preaching in inclusive language. There is a children's sermon during worship - after that, kids are dismissed to go to their own Young Listeners program.After worship, please feel free to stick around for coffee and conversation.  

We would be honored to have you join us! Please contact if you have further questions.

Church can happen anywhere.  It happens when we create learning opportunities that transform lives. It happens when we create safe environments where children can play and learn. It happens when education makes the path to citizenship a little easier. And when our sacrifices help nourish students’ minds and bodies. That’s putting beliefs into action.
