Welcome to Monumental!

Monumental United Methodist Church is more than a beautiful historic landmark.


Monumental UMC is a caring community of people who share their lives and faith in Jesus Christ.  Located in Olde Town in the heart of Portsmouth.  We are An Historic Church Serving the Present Day with vigor and enthusiasm without compromising our rich Methodist heritage.  Our worship, described as warm and traditional, is a reflection of our community.  Because of our goal to provide a meaningful experience that extends beyond Sundays, a wonderful fellowship has been built in and beyond the walls of our Sanctuary.  Here you will find people who show care and concern for others ... people always eager to minister in the name of the Lord in every way possible.  As our experience of belonging to each other grows, so does our experience of belonging to God.
