Brookline, Mass., March 1 - Highrock Brookline announced today that Kat Hampson will become its new Lead Pastor following a vote at a members’ meeting on February 28, 2021.
Welcome to Highrock Brookline! We would love to invite you to a service on Sunday or to any of our public events. If you’re new to Highrock, our main worship service on Sunday morning is a good place to start. Whether you're looking for a church or a place to ask questions and connect with God, we look forward to seeing you soon!
Sunday service at Highrock is a place to rejoice, revive, and rest. A place for community, where we worship, serve, eat, and laugh together. A place where messy and broken people come to encounter a loving God who desires to heal and transform. A place where we find strength in following Christ. We meet at the Brookline Teen Center (40 Aspinwall Ave.)
Please come as you are! You don’t have to dress or act a certain way, or even believe what we believe! We worship in a variety of ways, through songs, stories, and sermons. We value relevance while adhering to centuries-old Christian traditions, and incorporate both ancient and contemporary elements in our worship.
Most Sundays immediately after the service we eat together as a community. All are welcome to come and eat!
Kidsrock, our children's ministry, is available for 1- to 18-year-olds. Our Sunday School small groups (with the exception of Toddlers) begin at 9:30am, before the start of service. We welcome all families and parents to enjoy the time from 9:30am till the start of service at 10:30am to have breakfast, participate in Adult Sunday School, enjoy a short stroll, mingle with other parents & families, or serve in a ministry. Questions? Feel free to reach out to Pastor Yumiko or email email@example.com.
Infants are welcome to remain with us throughout the service and there is plenty of space in the back of the gym for them to crawl and play and of course if you need to step out there is plenty of areas for you to walk around or sit.
Our youngest small group meets after the passing of the peace. Toddlers (1-3 years) will have a Bible story, a fun craft, free playtime, songs, and a small snack. We ask parents to do any needed diaper changes and we will make sure to either text you or find you during worship, if needed.
We have exciting, kid-targeted programs from preschool through 5th grade. Sunday School small groups begin at 9:30am. After Small Group, all the children join with the adults to praise God in the main sanctuary. After praise and passing the peace, children will be invited to a large group time to build community, create, play, volunteer, and build relationships with one another. Parents and guardians may pick up their children immediately following service.
Each Sunday, our pre-teens and teens gather together at 9:30am for Sunday School Small Group. During the first and last Sundays of each month, we encourage them to attend worship service with their small group leaders so they can connect with the whole church. Some of the pre-teens and teens also have the option to serve in various areas of the church like our children’s, worship, welcoming, and hospitality ministries.
