Worship at State Street
State Street UMC is a historic church, formed in 1856, and Bristol’s first Methodist congregation. 100 years later the congregation moved from State Street to its current location in the Spring Garden community but retained the name of State Street. Today we are a church that appreciates our rich heritage and actively seeks God’s great future.
For our Sunday morning Modern Worship service, we meet in the Fellowship Hall on the lower level. This sets a casual and more flexible worship space. The music is led by our Praise Band, usually consisting of vocals, electric and acoustic guitars, bass, keyboard, and drums. This service includes multimedia audio and video. Our pastors alternate leading this service week to week.

Our celebration service is a central part of the Recovery at Bristol program. With a band providing live, contemporary Christian music, exciting multi-media productions, and dynamic speakers, the Recovery at Bristol celebration service allows participants to put the day’s issues aside and focus solely on their Higher Power – Jesus Christ – and all the change that becomes possible through Him. This service takes place in the fellowship hall on the lower level.
