Highpoint Episcopal Community Church Welcomes You

Sanctuary cross


We are delighted that you have found us. Highpoint Episcopal Community Church ("HECC") is one of Sandy Springs' best 
kept secrets.  Our Church is located at the top of a gently sloping hill in the middle of eight beautiful, largely wooded acres along High Point Road in Sandy Springs. At HECC, we provide a church home to those who want to focus on spirituality, pastoral care, and fellowship in a caring, nurturing environment, where Christian “community” is the focus.  


At HECC, we extend a warm welcome and invitation to you to worship with us this Sunday, whether you're just visiting Atlanta, curious about Christianity, looking for a place to worship, or searching for a community that will embrace you as you are. Come join us Sunday morning as we celebrate God's goodness and grace.  Let God's word challenge you to share His light with the world. 

 

We cordially invite you to come and see what is so special about Highpoint Episcopal Community Church -- the friendliest little neighborhood church in Sandy Springs.
