Algood United Methodist Church is a historic United Methodist church at 135 West Main Street in Algood, Tennessee.

The church was built in 1899 as a Methodist Episcopal Church, South. Land for the church was donated by brothers Alfred and Henry Algood, whose father was a circuit-riding Methodist minister. It is an example of the Carpenter Gothic architectural style. In 1909, a tornado caused extensive damage to the building. Restoration after the tornado included relocating the bell tower to the right-hand side of the building and installing the bell that still hangs there.[2]

In its early years, the church building served as an unofficial community center for Algood and was sometimes used for worship services of other denominations.[2]

The Algood Methodist Church building was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1979.[1][2]
