Special Announcement Regarding Reopening
Rev. Dr. Peter Allen
The Hingham Congregational Church is an Open and Affirming congregation of the United Church of Christ. Our welcome covenant and other important information about who we are can be found here. We hope that this website will be helpful, but please do reach out here if you have questions. Please join us for worship on Sunday mornings at 10:00 am. We have gone through an extensive renovation of our facilities, improved access, replaced outdated infrastructure, and updated our social spaces and classrooms. It’s wonderful to be back in and have the full use of the facilities. We have an active religious education program for people of all ages. Information about our church school for children can be found here. Hingham Congregational is a theologically progressive, solidly Christian church that takes the Bible seriously, but not literally. We work hard to create a warm, mutually supportive atmosphere where questions are encouraged, spiritual growth is our primary concern, and serving others is a high priority. We’d love for you to be part of our community!
Back to the Building Task Force
Covid-19 Statement to the Congregation
June 4, 2020
Out of an abundance of love for our worship community and in accordance with the United Church of Christ guidelines and recommendations, the HCC church building will remain closed for worship, meetings and other gatherings until the end of the summer. In the meantime, our pastors, musicians, church leaders and volunteers will continue to provide virtual worship services and prayer times.
We know this is disappointing news for many of us, as we miss gathering together all in one place. Hugs, smiles and a warm cup of coffee with our friends will be a part of our worship experience again. But for now, we feel our decision is a responsible and informed one, based on science and social evidence, (and some guidance from the Holy Spirit). The most important driver behind our decisions are, and always will be to keep our beloved church community safe.
We thank you for your patience and continued dedication to Hingham Congregational Church.

Annual Stewardship Pledging
— The pledge is our yearly commitment by each member of our church community to support the church by donating a prayerfully-discerned portion of our annual income. Pledging is the basic building block of financial stewardship at HCC.
Stay connected and get involved.
