Broad Street 
                       United Methodist Church

Welcome to Broad Street United Methodist Church. We're so glad you found our website.  It's a great place to learn a little about who we are, how to join us for worship, and most importantly, how we serve God.

If you're new to our church, we invite you to take a few moments to "click around" and find out what's happening in our community of believers.  We hope you'll discover that we are committed to loving God and loving our neighbors through our worship, our fellowship, our missions and ministries.

Who We Are                                                            

Broad Street UMC has been serving the Port Norfolk community in Portsmouth, Virginia since 1897. 

The original church was built in 1897 on the corner of Maryland Avenue and Detroit Street. The congregation moved into its current location at 300 Broad Street in 1914.  Our congregation varies from families and friends who have lived in Port Norfolk their entire lives to those who are brand new to the area.   In this worship space, all are welcome!

Join us in fellowship and worship!


   9:30 A.M.         
Sunday School 
 11:00 A.M.        Traditional Worship Service

Our 11:00 a.m. service features a traditional worship style.  Those who attend this service will enjoy conventional hymns accompanied by piano or organ, and an inspiring anthem or special music performed by our Adult Choir.

A nursery is available in our education wing for infants and children kindergarten age and under. Children's Church is also available during this service for children ages 3-5 following the Children's Message every Sunday except for Communion Sundays. Children will participate in a special lesson that parallels the scripture reading for that Sunday.

Broad Street participates in Communion on the first Sunday of the month and on special designated Sundays throughout the year (i.e. World Communion Sunday, Easter service, Christmas Eve service, etc.). We believe in an "open table" in which all are welcome to receive God's grace.
