Forward Church is a contemporary Christian church with a non denominational style of ministry. We have engaging services and a fun kids' ministry for children of all ages.
We are located at 3915 Turnpike Road, Portsmouth, Virginia 23701. Our services start at 10:30 am each Sunday.
The dress code at Forward Church is relaxed. We are a blue jeans and t-shirt kind of church. Your Monday clothes are your Sunday clothes!
When you show up at Forward you will be greeted by a member of our First Impressions Team. They will welcome you with a smile and be available to guide you to our kids' area or our main sanctuary. We also have the Sacred Grounds Coffeehouse onsite offering completely free coffee and water.
Your kids have their own worship space on Sunday mornings and are split up in age-appropriate settings. We have a check-in area where you can meet our Kids' Ministry Team as you check your children in before the worship service. Then one of our Kids' Ministry Team Members will help your child find the perfect place for him or her to make friends and encounter Jesus.
When you enter the main sanctuary at Forward Church you can sit anywhere you like. You will get to engage with our band in high-energy, contemporary worship music as you worship Jesus. After the music there will be a short time to connect with Jesus through giving financially to Forward Church. Then there's a 40 - 45 minute message designed to help you move forward with God. You'll laugh, you'll cry, you'll encounter Jesus!
Our Sundays usually last around 90 minutes. You'll get to connect with Jesus and connect with others on the same journey of life that you are on and you'll enjoy yourself in the process.
We look forward to seeing you this Sunday at Forward Church!
