Welcome to Hyde Park Presbyterian Church!
At Hyde Park, we have two places and styles of worship Sunday mornings: the Traditional Service (sancutary) and Crave, a Contemporary service (upstairs). Crave begins at 9:45 am and the traditional service starts at 11 am – each one hour long. A nursery is available for both services and Sunday School is also available. Communion is observed on the first Sunday of the month at both services.
Here’s what to expect from each service:
Crave Service: Second Floor
Contemporary Worship happens upstairs in Fellowship Hall. Enter the church building from the Willow or Orleans doors and look for signs for the elevator. Feel free to ask anyone in the area for directions.
Grab some coffee or muffins; it’s ok to take them to your seat, too. The Crave service is pretty laid back, so you are also welcome to get refills anytime you’d like.
Traditional worship takes place in the santuary downstairs. Enter from Swann Ave. or from either the Orleans or Willow entrances. Our ushers will greet you, give you a worship bulletin and answer any questions you have.
Whichever style of worship you choose, we welcome your presence.
Answers to some questions you might have:
What to wear
At the contemporary service, dress is quite casual. We want you to feel comfortable worshiping, so feel free to dress comfortably. At the traditional service, most people wear business casual attire; suits for men are uncommon.
What do I do with my kids
If you have a child from ages 0-3, please feel free to drop your child off at the nursery when you arrive. Please check out the Nursery page for more information. If you have a child from ages 3 yr to 5th grade, they are welcome to stay in the service (tote bags for children are found at the entrance to both services) or participate in Sunday School. Please check out the Sunday School page for more information on age groups and times.
We also have a children’s sermon early in the 11am service. Children, ages K through 5th grade, may then exit for Kid’s Kirk, held in an adjacent room. A clipboard of appropriate activities is available for children who remain in the service.
Do I need anything for the service?
Bibles are provided for the traditional service and relevant verses are displayed on the screen at the contemporary service. If you want to take notes, please bring a writing instrument.
