CUMC History


CUMC is a neighborhood church nestled in the heart of the Ashton Heights/Clarendon neighborhood of Arlington, VA. The Church began in 1901 as a small Sunday school gathering.  The first church building was constructed in 1906 near North Jackson and Irving Streets, two blocks north of Wilson Boulevard.  The current building at 606 North Irving Street was built in 1941, expanded in 1951 to include the three-story Education Wing, and again in 2001 to renovate much of the building and add an accessible entrance on Ivy Street. 

Throughout the years, Clarendon UMC has provided vital worship, community support and a rich diversity of people coming to glorify God in everything it does.   On our 100 year commemoration, we celebrated this rich history with an indepth chronicle of who we are.
