The mission of Fairfields United Methodist Church is to be an instrument of God’s love by spreading the Good News of Jesus Christ and ministering to all people.


Local historian Carolyn Jett compiled a fascinating, beautifully written history of our church and Methodism in this part of Virginia, from the 1700’s until the present. History FUMC.

Old Fairfields Cemetery

This historic country graveyard is at the intersection of Hull’s Neck and Folly roads in Edwardsville. This was the site of Fairfields’ first church building, when these roads were the route to the courthouse (before US Route 360).

The church moved to Burgess in the 1920’s.

The cemetery is still used today. For information, call the church office at 804-453-3770 or view the page on this website.
