Welcome to the virtual home of Metropolitan African Methodist Episcopal Church, the National Cathedral of African Methodism. We are physically located near the White House, Congress and Supreme Court—seats of executive, legislative, and judicial authority in the United States. Our ancestors thoughtfully bequeathed this ministry and location to us at the intersection of the history and future of African Americans with the power corridors of the nation. The church must be about ministries of justice that change the social and political reality.
We have been bearing witness to the sovereign God through praiseful worship, spreading the power of the gospel message to liberate the oppressed, and serving humanity since 1838. Ours is a Sankofa ministry with a theology of locationówe are looking to our ancestral past while joyfully embracing the possibilities and challenges of the future. We invite you to become a part of our story.
Please worship with us in person or via live stream on Sundays at 7:45 am and 11:00 am and on Wednesdays at 12:00 noon. Church School convenes on Sundays at 9:30 am and Bible Study is held on Wednesdays at 7:00 pm.
In July and August, there is one Worship Service at 10:15 am, Church School at 8:45 am, and no Bible Study. For more information, please call 202-331-1426.
