St. Timothy’s Church is located in the heart of Wilson, North Carolina, the seat of Wilson County. Our beautiful Gothic Revival church, erected in 1905, is on the city’s tour of historic structures. The building includes a center-aisle sanctuary with a chapel and loft, a large and well-appointed common room, parish hall, commercial kitchen, library, and classrooms. Offices and an additional chapel are housed in a separate building. Also on the property is a Carriage House which has a small kitchen and dining area. This space is used by our Community Outreach Team to serve breakfast to anyone who is hungry at 9:00am on Sundays.
St. Timothy’s is a welcoming, liturgical, prayer-centered church, a family church, where fellowship, outreach, hospitality, and service define our activities. As a worshipping community since 1856, we have welcomed several local groups of believers (Eastern Orthodox and Hispanic), and we fostered a Hispanic group, which now worships with St. Mark’s. Our members seek to know God’s love and to extend the kindness and generosity of Christ to those around us. We wish to be builders of community. Through service to others we will continue to nurture our personal bonds and to strengthen our connection with God and the world around us.
We are committed to our spiritual development as individuals and to the vibrancy of the parish as a whole. As we adopt new leadership, we hope to more effectively inspire and educate our youth through meaningful discussion, play, and music. We strive to engage parishioners of all ages and backgrounds so that together we may experience the supportive and healing love of God in Christ. We celebrate our history and we are ready, with God’s help and our clergy’s guidance, to step into the future.
The church is located at the intersection of Goldsboro and Green streets, right behind the Wilson County Courthouse and the Wilson Police Station and around the corner from the offices of the Wilson County School Board.
