Clarendon Presbyterian Church is a progressive, diverse, and inclusive church community located in the heart of the Clarendon neighborhood of Arlington, Va., just two blocks from the Clarendon Metro station.
We are a congregation in the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) and a member of National Capital Presbytery. We’re also members of the More Light Presbyterians network of congregations, working for the full participation of LGBTQ people of faith in the life of the church.
We are young and old, straight and gay, singles, couples and families of all kinds. Some of us are life-long Presbyterians. Some come from other Protestant denominations or were raised Roman Catholic or come from other faith traditions. And some of us are altogether new to a faith community.
We are a vibrant congregation of approximately 90 members and friends, and we strive to be a church that welcomes and celebrates all people. If you have questions or suggestions about inclusion or accessibility, please contact Pastor Alice.
