During the current shelter in place, due to COVID-19, FPC is offering devotionals and sermons on our Facebook page, YouTube, and IGTV. You can find links to our YouTube channel on the home page. We also have small group opportunities. Please contact one of the small group leaders if you are interested in joining an online group.
When we are all able to worship together in person, service begins at 10:30am with Sunday School for adults and kids from 9:15-10:15am. (Feel free to join us for a very informal coffee time after the service!) From June thru August, service begins at 9:30am and runs about an hour. Sunday School takes a break during the summer months.
We love visitors and new members! You’ll meet friendly people as you walk into our beautiful 19th century sanctuary constructed by some of the same craftsmen who built the famous mansions on Bellevue Avenue.
More importantly, you’ll see that Jesus is the true foundation of this congregation that loves and worships God. Come join us in discovering Christ’s love for us as we all grow in our relationship with Him.
Our worship service celebrates the glory of the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit through hymns, prayers, music, and Scripture-based teaching. On the first Sunday of the month we receive communion together, too.
If you’ve never been to a Presbyterian church, that’s OK! You’ll discover how our worship resonates across centuries, cultures, and churches as we all seek His loving purpose for our modern lives.
Parking is available on the streets around the church. Handicapped spaces are available on Everett and Calvert Streets and do not require a formal handicap license.
4 Everett Street, Newport, RI. We are very easy to find. The church faces Broadway Street, a main artery through downtown Newport, and is at the intersection of Everett and Broadway (next to Dunkin Donuts). There’s a Civil War memorial statue of a Union soldier in front of the church, and Equality Park is across the street.
We have a well-equipped nursery for babies and toddlers. Children are welcome to attend the worship service with their families. About fifteen minutes into the worship service the pastor does a special “Children’s Message” for ages 3-6, after which they are invited to attend a special Young Children and Worship time led by one of our many gifted volunteers.
