Worship at Hedding:
we gather to praise God,
to hear and reflect on God's living Word,
to turn our hearts to prayer,

We are in ministry with our community:
Our Overflow Shelter is open seven-nights-a-week. We can accommodate up to fourteen guests (and have been averaging 8) through our collaboration with Good Samaritan Haven. We could use a few more volunteers to stay overnight with guests. Contact Good Samaritan Haven at 479-2294 for more information. Thank you!
A brief history: The Hedding United Methodist Church congregation has been worshiping God and nurturing disciples of Jesus Christ since the early 1800s, when our meeting house stood on what is now the city park. Since that time we have occupied two other buildings, including the current facility located at 40 Washington Street which was built in 1895 and expanded in 1958. Our building includes our sanctuary where we hold Sunday morning worship at 10 AM, Fellowship Hall where free Friday Community Suppers are served each Friday at 5:30 PM, a food shelf open Wednesdays and Thursdays from 3-5 PM, offices and space for community groups and programs.
Hedding is named for Elijah Hedding, one of our early pastors, who went on to be a very important bishop in the early 1800s.
OUR MISSION TODAY
Today, Hedding is anchored in the love of Jesus Christ and our commitment to the community of Barre. We seek to be a spiritual home for those on the journey of faith. We offer a place of community and fellowship in which to grow as disciples of Jesus Christ.
