OUR HISTORY

Founded in 1876, Ashburn Presbyerian Church was originally called the Farmwell Presbyterian Church after the former name of the Village of Ashburn. A sanctuary was erected that year on 10.3 acres of land just south of the community.


Throughout most of our history, we were a small rural church that struggled to support a full-time pastor and whose membership did not reach 100 until 1989. Since then, our congregation has experienced dramatic growth and our facilities have expanded through multiple building projects. In 1967 an education wing was added to the sanctuary which was later used as staff offices. By the early 90's it became apparent that the small sanctuary could no longer hold the growing membership, and in 1992 Pickell Hall was constructed. It served the dual purpose of worship center and fellowship hall until the new sanctuary was constructed in 2002. The most recent building project to expand Pickell Hall was completed in 2007.

WHO WE ARE

Ashburn Presbyterian Church is a work of the Holy Spirit. For almost 150 years this congregation has stood as a testimony to God’s faithfulness serving the Savior who alone is head of the church and the cornerstone of our faith.   

Our vision as a church is expressed in three simple phrases:  to Know Christ, Grow in Faith, and Serve Others. Through these statements we affirm our identity and our call, which is to connect people to Christ. This is what we want to do in our worship, classes, fellowship activities, service in the community, mission support, and daily lives.

We seek to be the family that God intended, and welcome all who want to be part of that family through Jesus Christ. God is calling us to grow together in faith, loving and serving one another, and our community. Through this, we find hope, joy and excitement for all God has planned for each of us and APC.
