Message From Our Rector

"Finding a church home is challenging.  You want a place where you can be yourself, where you can bring your doubts, questions, and concerns, where you can be inspired and uplifted, and where you can find a greater purpose.  Hickory Neck Episcopal Church does that and so much more.  After you have taken some time to get to know us through our website, I hope you will come and meet us in person.  You are welcome here!"

The Reverend Jennifer Andrews-Weckerly

Our Ministries

Working toward a better world!


The worship at Hickory Neck is joyous!  Whether in the quiet of the candlelit Christmas Eve midnight Mass or the moving celebration of the Great Vigil of Easter, these ministries ensure our parishioners are well-fed through our Sunday worship services.

Parish Life

At Hickory Neck we really enjoy each other's company, and find many ways to gather outside of Sunday worship.  The Parish Life committee is very active throughout the year with a wide range of support minstries that are vital to the health and happiness of our community.

Contact:  Jennie Corrales


Helping those in need in our local community has become a vital part of the work of Hickory Neck parishioners.  A large number of members are involved in some form of outreach.  We support more than a dozen local charities in one way or another.

Winter Emergency Shelter

Our week to host here at Hickory Neck is from March 4th to March 11th. We hope you will participate in this ministry!


If you plan to volunteer during the shelter week, please attend a training session this Sunday, February 25th, after the 9 am service in the Wilkinson Center led by Ashley Willis, the Executive Director of Community of Faith Mission.


We also are in need of monetary donations to meet our shelter expenses: during our week, we will serve 280 dinners, 210 breakfasts, and 140 lunches.


Most importantly, sign up to volunteer at  http://signup.com/go/SRgDJiq


The days we are responsible for covering are the evening of Sunday, March 4 to the morning of Monday, March 5; the evening of Wednesday, March 7 to the morning of Thursday, March 8; and the evening of Saturday, March 10 to the morning of Sunday, March 11.


Other shifts throughout the week are available. Our greatest need is for overnight volunteers. Overnight volunteers primarily supervise to ensure a restful night for our guests, so most shifts are quiet.


We hope you will consider offering your time to this critical ministry in the life of our community and our church!
