Galloway Memorial Episcopal Church

Galloway Memorial Episcopal Church (GMEC) began as Galloway Memorial Chapel, built in memory of Alexander Broadnax Galloway by his wife, Laura Foard Galloway, in 1898. The Nave at GMEC is the oldest church building in Elkin in continuous use. 

Today, we are a vibrant, warm, and inclusive congregation in the Episcopal/Anglican tradition. As a community of disciples, we seek to follow Jesus into loving, liberating and life-changing relationship with God, with each other and with the whole of creation. Wherever you are on your journey of faith, you are welcome here!


In the spirit of Micah 6:8, the following mission statement grounds us as a community in the way of Jesus:

Do Justice. Love Mercy. Walk Humbly With God.

The Episcopal Church gathers for worship in 113 dioceses across 17 nations. As descendents of the Church of England, The Episcopal Church is a member province of the worldwide Anglican Communion, the third largest communion of Christians in the world.
