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 We have gone through an extensive renovation of our facilities, improved access, replaced outdated infrastructure, and updated our social spaces and classrooms.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!
Annual Stewardship Pledging
The 2020/21 Stewardship season is here! Every year, our Faith Promises provide a solid foundation for our Church, strengthening our Congregation, supporting our own Faith Journeys and allowing us to act on our Faith in the wider world.
Our campaign this year – “Beloved” – is a reflection of how we can be called to respond to the difficult year it’s been – one of pandemic concern and isolation, and a heightened focus on our country’s struggle with social justice. As we try to maintain Hope and Faith, we need to remember that we as a Congregation are beloved to each other, as we are all beloved by God.
As we do every year, we ask you for discernment and reflection on your own Faith Promise and thank you for taking a moment to fill out the online Pledge card below. (If you prefer more traditional means of commitment, you will also be receiving a Stewardship letter and pledge card in the mail.)

BACK TO THE BUILDING TASK FORCE STATEMENT
October 29, 2020
In collaboration with the Deacons, staff and Executive Council, we decided to suspend all in-person worship services and meetings inside the church building until further notice. Our goal was to return to worship in the sanctuary this fall, but with current Covid-19 levels in Hingham and the surrounding community, virtual services continue to be our safest option. We feel blessed that we have learned much about creative virtual worship so that we can still “gather” together in other ways, and look forward to producing higher quality virtual services moving forward.
The work of our church will not stop. Please stay active in our Hingham Congregational Church community by worshiping joyously, giving graciously and keeping in touch. For news and information about all our continuing missions, worship and prayer opportunities, and virtual social gatherings, please regularly check out the HCC website and read all our email communications.
Stay safe and stay involved with our beloved church,
Yours in faith,
The Back to the Building Task Force
