About Us

Where history and community meet.

Our Ministry spans three centuries. We are the visible link to Norfolk’s colonial history, occupying the oldest and only remaining pre-Revolutionary War building in downtown Norfolk. Our churchyard is the original community burying ground with the graves of many of Norfolk’s early citizens. St. Paul’s is listed on the Virginia Landmarks Register and the National Register of Historic Places since 1971.

The clergy, vestry, and parishioners of the Borough Church/Saint Paul’s Church have made important contributions to the welfare of the Norfolk and regional communities and to the enrichment of the lives of their citizens. These contributions date from the earliest settlement of the Elizabeth River Parish in the 1630’s and continue to this day.

We would love to have you join us on Sundays.
