We would like to Welcome YOU and YOUR Family to OUR Website and, hopefully to OUR CHURCH!

                 Groves Memorial is a Family Orientated Church with programs tailored to meet the spiritual needs of our Congregation and their Families.

 The mission of Groves Memorial Presbyterian Church is committed to the worship of God, to grow into the character of Christ through discipleship, to nourish and care for one another with the compassion of Christ, and to respond to the Spirit's call in our outreach.

We had our humble beginnings in 1885 as a Sabbath School in Saddler's Neck, not far from our present location.

The church moved to the present site in 1903 after the construction of a new wood framed building. Services were conducted in the original wood structure up until 1967 when it was replaced by the present building

Groves Memorial is a member of the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.),

          Synod Mid Atlantic, Presbytery of Eastern Va. located in Portsmouth,Va.
