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 and all are welcome to participate.

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.
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. We have a nursery available every Sunday as an option for parents with children under the age of 4. Our nursery is staffed with vetted and trained attendants.
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.
