During the Colonial period, Pohick Church was the congregation of many of our country's most prominent families, including the Washingtons, Masons and Fairfaxes.
Today, as a vibrant parish of several hundred members, we continue their tradition of Christian worship, study and service in the midst of this historic building and its wooded estate.
As you browse through this site, we hope you will catch some of the "Spirit of Pohick"a Spirit of joy that springs from our common life in Christ.
Please visit us in person, either to worship with us or to join in one of the many events described on these pages. You will be most welcome here in this holy place where past, present and future come together in a unique and inspiring way.
be a part of history in the making!
The mission of Pohick Church is to proclaim the
Good News of Jesus Christ,
to advance the
role of the
Episcopal Church as an
the Gospel, and to
create a nourishing Christian community of worship
where Christ's love is experienced
and taken beyond
