Who We Are

The historic Rayne Memorial United Methodist Church, with its unique and lovely Gothic-revival architecture, built in 1875, has had for 136 years, a strong and active ministry in the heart of uptown New Orleans. Because of its tall, graceful spire illuminated at night, she has become known as “The Church of the Lighted Steeple.” Committed to a ministry of "open hearts, open minds, open doors," Rayne welcomes all regardless of race, class, gender, or sexual orientation and is a Reconciling Congregation.
