We are on 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. Join us on Sundays at 10:55 am for vibrant, hopeful & dynamic worship -- let us know you are here and we will make sure to find you and introduce ourselves.
