What to Expect


Worship at Hidenwood Presbyterian is built around the scripture lesson for the day. We use liturgy to serve the scriptural theme, so there is some variety in what we do at each service. Musical pieces are accompanied by the organ or piano, or a variety of other instruments. Most of the service is printed into the bulletin although some of the music and liturgy can be found on our rear-projection screen as well. Communion is celebrated on the first Sunday of each month. The goal is for our people to leave feeling that they have truly worshiped God today.

What you can expect inside

We promise we won’t ask you to stand up during a service to be recognized! But you won’t be invisible either. Our greeters will introduce themselves and welcome you to the service. They may suggest you check out our Visitor’s Center where you will find more information about the church and our many programs. You may sit wherever you like–seats are not reserved. You can find visitor folders in the narthex filled with up to date information on the church and the many different opportunites to become involved.


Hidenwood observes the sacrament of communion the first Sunday of each month, and during special services such as Maundy Thursday. Everyone is welcome to participate.

What to wear

You will find a wide variety of dress at our services. Most people wear business casual, but you will find some other worshipers in jeans, suits and ties, and dresses.

How to get here

We’re located in midtown Newport News, convenient to all areas of the Virginia Peninsula and beyond. Christopher Newport University is right up the street, and the Mariner’s Museum is about one mile away.

Children are always welcome

All children, regardless of age, are welcome in worship. In fact, we encourage children to attend services as a way to learn about worship through participation and observation. For younger children our nursery is open every Sunday where vetted and trained attendants care for newborns to children up to age 4.

Nursery hours:
September 11, 2022 – June 2023. 9am-1pm

Plenty of parking available

We occupy a whole block! That means there is plenty of parking on our site. Handicapped spaces are clearly marked and located at the most accessible of our entrances. If you or someone coming with you needs assistance upon arrival, ushers will be available. You may also contact the church office in advance to make any special arrangements.
