Worship Opportunities

11:30am Traditional Worship meeting in our Sanctuary.

This service is also streamed live for our Zoom community that was formed during the

COVID-19 pandemic (Contact Pastor Shaun for details).

It has a casual atmosphere, traditional hymns and liturgy.

First Sunday Worship is held with celebration of Communion followed by a Fellowship Lunch that is hosted by members of the church.

Snapshot of Ministries

Doses of Love:  Special collections during the Christmas Season (and occasionally throughout the year) are given to our local pharmacy where they distribute according to need to community members who cannot afford their prescriptions.

Bake And Bloom:  A yearly May tradition!  $5 potato with all the fixin's in addition to flower sale, local vendors, bake table, and silent auction.

Live Dramas:  Community displays of Live Nativity and Last Supper Drama during the Christmas and Easter season - members of our church bring these events to life...sometimes with LIVE ANIMALS!

Kiptopeke Readers:  Visiting our local elementary school monthly, we have many volunteers (throughout the charge) who go and read to some of our youngest students.

History (in brief)

Magothy Bay Chapel began in 1814 but had its roots in circuit preachers establishing a Methodist movement all the way back in 1795.

The initial site of the Chapel, renamed to Capeville sometime after the Civil War, is lost to time.  The current building was established in 1905, followed by the construction of the education building in 1960.

Capeville's history tethers it as the "mother church" to Cobb's Island (1882), Cape Charles (1887), and Townsend Mission (1901).

Capeville and Trinity have shared a two-point charge for many years and just recently welcomed Cheriton into the charge as of 2021.
