About Warrenton Presbyterian Church

Warrenton Presbyterian Church is a vibrant and welcoming congregation in the heart of Old Town Warrenton, Virginia. Our church’s tagline is: “A Servant Community,” as we seek to follow our servant Lord, Jesus Christ.  We are a proud member of the Presbyterian Church U.S.A. and the Shenandoah Presbytery.  

We welcome women and men, young and old and everyone in between to join us in ministry and fellowship here at WPC!  As a connectional church, we also seek to be in ministry and fellowship with other denominations and faith communities seeking to learn from one another as we serve Christ and neighbor.

Our Story

Presbyterians began worshiping in Fauquier County as early as 1771, and were instrumental in the founding of the old Warren Academy as well as the town of Warrenton.  Legend has it that when our former building was destroyed by a tornado, only the pulpit and Bible remained intact.  We have worshiped in our current building since 1855, and in 1999, we added on our current sanctuary and fellowship hall. From 1771 to today, our congregation has remained one that sees itself as engaged with our town and wider community—which is why we highly value being a Main Street congregation.   (From “The Story of A Church: A History of the Warrenton Presbyterian Church” by Rev. J. Richard Winter, Pastor Emeritus)

Discovering WPC

Want to know more about us? Throughout the year, we offer a Discovering WPC class which is designed to introduce or refresh basics of Christian teaching, the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) as well as to orient you to WPC, its history, its organization, its programs and its people. The class is a great way to get to know the congregation and its ministries as well as other persons who are exploring membership.  If you are interested or have questions, please contact Pastor Jim ([email protected]) or our office manager, Mary Hall ([email protected]) at 540-347-2213.
