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've taken some time to get to know us through our website, I hope you'll come and meet us in person.  You are welcome here!"

- The Reverend Jennifer Andrews-Weckerly

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.

Upcoming Events

Advent Lessons & Carols

Sunday, December 8th, 9:00 am & 11:15 am

Advent Lessons and Carols services on Sunday, December 8th, will be led by the Parish Choir at 9:00 service and the Choral Scholars at 11:15 am.  These reflective services help lead us into the anticipation of Christ’s birth.

Advent Sunday Forum:  Advent Psalms

Sundays, December 8th, 15th, & 22nd, 10:15 am

Join us on December 8, 15, and 22 following the 9 am service (starting around 10:15 am) for a study of three Advent psalms, using the corresponding images from the Alabaster Book of Psalms. We will use a lectio divina model to shape our conversation, which will include time for silence and reflection as well as discussion as we delve into these psalms in the context of Advent.



Blue Christmas Service

Saturday, December 21st, 5:00 pm

Recognizing the myriad ways Christmas can be a difficult time: for those grieving, those struggling with seasonal blues, those feeling lonely, or those who just generally feel down despite the fact that society tells us we should be full of cheer, HNC will hold its Annual Blue Christmas Service on Saturday, December 21, at 5:00 pm, in the Historic Chapel.  This service is held on December 21st every year to mark the Winter Solstice – the day with the least amount of daylight in the year. All are welcome to this powerful event.
