Whether you’re perusing online for the first time, or you’ve visited and want to learn more, we’re so glad you found Walnut Hill Church.

Our picturesque church is nestled amongst some of the Bluegrass state’s finest horse farms at 575 Walnut Hill Road in Lexington, KY. Our sanctuary, built in 1801, and the surrounding landscape offer a unique retreat that embodies Psalm 118’s affirmation “This is the Lord’s doing; it is marvelous in our eyes.”


One of the best ways to get to know us is to visit! Each Sunday, WHC offers a uniquely traditional, scripture-focused message relayed in a conversational style. Our schedule includes:

10AM Sunday Morning Conversation | Trinity Hall

Members, friends, and guests are encouraged to gather around our fireplace for a member-led discussion on weekly faith-based topics. Sunday Morning Conversation is held in Trinity Hall (our fellowship hall adjacent to the sanctuary) until 10:45AM.

11AM Worship Service; Child/Youth Formation | Sanctuary

Reverend Shawn Barkley leads the congregation in an 11am worship service that draws from Presbyterian and Episcopal traditions, but is accessible to every Christian denomination. Service typically includes two to three hymns, a scripture reading, and lively sermon that references everything from history, sports, psychology, modern life, to current events. An offering is collected during the service for those who wish to give in this manner. Online giving is also available at any time.

Child (Kindergarten-5th grade) and Youth Formation (6th-12th grade) are available during the worship hour with our Director of Child and Youth Ministry. Children and youth join the congregation in worship and are excused to Trinity Hall before our scripture reading.

Childcare, led by two CPR-certified, background checked church employees, is also offered starting at 10:30AM until the conclusion of worship in our Trinity Hall nursery.

12PM Fellowship Hour | Trinity Hall

Coffee and light refreshments are served immediately following worship. This is a great time to meet our friends and members and learn more about the WHC community.

First Sunday of Every Month: Communion + Choir

WHC celebrates communion on the first Sunday of each month. The elements are served by both the passing of bread and cup and by intinction. Everyone is invited to participate. Our choir, organized by WHC Director of Music and organist, Dr. Angela Hurley, also joins us this day.

Still have questions? Please view some of our past Sunday Morning Worships on our Facebook page.
