Duke Memorial United Methodist Church is a Christ-centered, vibrant and vital congregation, a sign and foretaste of God's kingdom in downtown Durham. We have a mission to share Christ from the heart of Durham. When Duke Memorial was birthed in 1885, one of its founders, Mr. Washington Duke, believed this new church in the West End of downtown Durham was to be a church for the masses. Today our mission is much the same. Our congregation desires to share Christ from the heart of Durham through our hospitality and welcome, through our worship of God, through our faith in and faithfulness to Jesus Christ, and through our work of compassion, justice, and peace in Durham and beyond.All visitors to Duke Memorial are asked to give us feedback on our service, sermon, building and facilities through an online response form.
