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

Upcoming Events

"Blue Christmas Service"

Hickory Neck will be offering a service called our "Blue Christmas Service."  The service will be held in the Historic Chapel at 7:00 p.m. on Thursday, December 21, a significant date as it is the winter solstice - the day with the least amount of light in the year.

The "Blue Christmas Service" is meant to recognize the myriad ways that Christmas can be a difficult time - for those grieving, those struggling with seasonal blues, those feeling lonely, or those who just generally feel down during a time when society tells us we should be feeling full of cheer.

All are welcome to this contemplative, quiet service, and we encourage you to invite a friend or neighbor.  You might be surprised by how many people need this kind of service during this season.
