Welcome to Kingswood!


If you are seeking a place to worship … experience God’s love … be surrounded by a supportive congregation … grow in faith … and use your talents in outreach to others … we encourage you to visit us at Kingswood United Methodist Church.

  We’re located in Rural Hall, N.C., just north of Winston-Salem. Our contemporary architecture and spacious front lawn make us easy to spot us at 6840 University Parkway North.   We are a mid-size church with about 450 members, some of whom are long-time residents of Rural Hall, but many others have joined us after moving to this area from other communities or states.   Our congregation includes those who have grown up as United Methodists, others who have come to accept Jesus as adults, and those who have transferred their membership from other denominations.   You'll find us a friendly congregation that welcomes visitors and encourages active involvement.   Sunday School for all ages begins at 9:45; Worship services are at 11:00 on Sunday.   Whether you prefer “church clothes” or come casual, you will feel at home with our friendly congregation. We hope to see you soon!   For additional information, call the church office at 969-5437.

Christmas Eve Service

If you have ever attended the Christmas Eve service at Kings -wood you know how special it is as we sit quietly with family and our church family pondering the Chrismon Tree and the cross, singing familiar carols, listening to the so-familiar yet so-welcome story of Christ’s coming, sharing communion . . . contemplating what we will do with His gift of love . . . leaving by candlelight . . . pausing for hugs and handshakes as we wish each other a Merry Christmas. Join us Saturday, December 24 at 5:30 pm for this special occasion.
