History

Many followers of Jesus have shaped who we are as a congregation. Each member and each relationship has contributed to our journey with Jesus and to our witness in the world. The roots of West Richmond Church of the Brethren reach back to 1918, when Brethren in Richmond expressed interest in forming a church fellowship. 

After meeting in a rented facility, a three-story house on East Broad Street, an Episcopal Chapel, and a community building; the fledgling and at times struggling fellowship bought part of the historic Hickory Hill Plantation from the Smith family in 1956. The congregation began meeting in a pre-Civil War farm house called “the White Building,” erected a parsonage in 1957, and build a chapel that was dedicated in 1961. A gathering room, a kitchen, bathrooms, offices, a choir room and Sunday school rooms were added in 1988. Upgrades to the facilities have been made over the years. In 1988, the congregation agreed to house a preschool, now called Hilltop Preschool. We presently employ a full time pastor, a youth and young adult minister, an administrative assistant, a music coordinator, a choir director, and a custodian.

Worship

Worship is an important part of West Richmond Church of the Brethren. It is seen as a celebration that prepares us for the daily walk of faith, helping to connect God’s love for us with our love for one another. In addition to regular Sunday morning worship at 11:00am, we hold special services on Christmas Eve, Good Friday and Easter morning, also participating in a Community Thanksgiving service planned with other area congregations. Many talented individuals offer their gifts through special, choral and instrumental music, with a gifted choir and handbell choir rehearsing each Wednesday throughout the school year. Though somewhat traditional in worship style, we are open to innovative ways to celebrate our faith. Our worship services almost always includes a worship leader, readings and prayers connected to the lectionary, a children’s message, a time for sharing joys and concerns and a sermon that is series-developed from Biblical themes and passages.

Since we see nurture and spiritual growth as essential to the journey of faith, each Sunday at 9:45 a.m. we provide a nursery for babies and small children and Sunday school age classes for all ages, preschool through adult. Bible Studies are offered during special seasons of the year, along with occasional all-church retreats and other special events that give opportunity for learning and developing a life of faith.
