Tinkling Spring is located on forty-one acres of beautiful hillside in the Shenandoah Valley. Our commitment has always been to support and provide for our church members and for the community.
The church’s grounds include the sanctuary, Spring Hall with a full kitchen and gymnasium, the education building, the church office, the Fellowship Hall with a full kitchen, the outdoor pavilion, the playground area, three cemeteries, and a natural spring named The Tinkling Spring from which the church derived its name. Below is a description of our large spaces that are often reserved for weddings, funerals, showers, reunions, athletics, and other needs. If you would like to reserve one of the church facilities, please check out our facilities calendar to see if the date is available, and then contact the church office at email@example.com or call (540)885-0746 to reserve the space.
Construction of the new sanctuary began on August 14, 2005, and was completed in April 2007. The sanctuary is adorned with stained glass windows and plush carpet. In front of the sanctuary is a chancel area that contains a pulpit, piano, organ, and chairs for the choir members. At the front are the visual furniture marking the Sacraments of Baptism and the Lord’s Supper; the Baptismal Font and the Communion Table. Off the chancel area, there is a large music room where various groups practice and the office for the music director. Together the sanctuary and balcony seat 525 people.
Located in our main building, Spring Hall was built in 1998 and serves as our gymnasium; a multipurpose room with a full kitchen and stage area. It seats approximately 350 people.
Located across from the church, the fellowship hall is a white building situated near the old cemetery. Some of the rock foundation of this building came from the original church building. The fellowship hall is often used for bridal and wedding showers, as well as for many other church events, and contains a full kitchen. The fellowship hall seats approximately 125 people.
Located behind the main building, the pavilion is our best kept secret. On Sunday mornings during the summer months, our 8:30 a.m. service is held at the pavilion, weather permitting. The pavilion has ten picnic tables, a grill area with a fireplace, and additional lighting for evening events.
Tinkling Spring Presbyterian Church is in the process of determining the feasibility of developing a computerized system enabling us to capture all available information concerning those buried in our cemeteries.
