Visit

Welcome to Highrock Arlington! 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 Sanctuary is a good place to start.  For a more casual atmosphere, The Mill service is just one block away. Whether you're looking for a church or a place to ask questions and connect with God, we look forward to seeing you soon!

Woman worshiping at Main Sanctuary of Highrock Church
9:00am & 10:45am services

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. 

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. 

Kidsrock, our children's ministry, is offered at both morning services for infants through fifth grade. If you have young children, a greeter will be happy to direct you to the children's ministry locations, which open for drop off 10 minutes before the start of each service.  During the service, parent paging is available for your peace of mind. Questions? Reach out to our Children's Director, Justin Choi, at justin@highrock.org

Head downstairs after the service for a cup of coffee or tea and snacks. It’s a great opportunity to make connections and meet new people—and it’s free!

Like to savor your Sunday morning coffee? One perk of worshiping at the Mill is that free coffee and snacks are available before, during, and after the service. The Mill has a more casual “cafe-like” vibe, so you can sip your coffee or have a pastry as you take in the sermon!

Probably the most unique feature of worship at the Mill is that instead of having a live preacher, the sermon is pre-recorded and then presented on screen during the service. Surrounded by the Mill's warm and welcoming atmosphere, it is like watching the sermon in your living room. The rest of the service is live and follows the same format of worship in the Main Sanctuary.

If you have young children, check in with a greeter at our Main Sanctuary (735 Mass Ave), and they'll be happy to direct you to the Kidsrock (children's ministry) locations. Children's ministries are open for drop off 10 minutes before the start of the service. We recommend budgeting a little extra time to make the short walk over to the Mill after dropping off your children. During the service, parent paging is available for your peace of mind. Questions? Contact our Children's Director, Justin Choi, at justin@highrock.org

Kids & Youth

Infants through Grade Five

On Sunday mornings, we have exciting, kid-targeted programs for infants through 5th grade during the 9:00am and 10:45am services. Groups are open for drop-off at 8:50am and 10:35am, and parent paging is available for your peace of mind during worship. Parents and guardians may pick up their children immediately following service. 

For more information, please contact our Children’s Director, Justin Choi, at justin@highrock.org

Grades Six through Twelve

On Sundays, many of our teens serve in various areas of the church like our children’s, worship, welcoming, and hospitality ministries. In addition, we encourage teens to be a part of the entire worship service so they can connect with the whole church.  

For more information, contact Pastor Brian Dietz at brian@highrock.org

Getting Here

Highrock’s Main Sanctuary

735 Massachusetts Avenue, Arlington, MA 02476. 

The Mill 

14 Mill Street, Arlington, MA 02476 

The Mill is a red brick building with large glass windows just around the corner from the Main Sanctuary.  You'll find the entrance in the small parking lot, under the wooden sign at the top of the steps and ramp.

Free Sunday Parking

While you'll likely find street parking nearby (e.g. on Mass Ave), several parking lots within walking distance are also available on Sundays.

  • Limited parking for those with special needs and families with children is available in the small lot behind the main church building (off Bacon St) and in front of the Mill.
  • Arlington Town Hall (across Mass Ave, via Academy St)  
  • Citizen's Bank (one block east of the church)
  • The medical office building parking lot on Mill Brook Drive is also free on Sundays.  Turn onto Mill Brook Drive, pass the Mill building on your left, and enter the parking lot on the left (the entrance is just past the parking attendant booth).

These three buses stop right in front of the main church building:

  • 77 bus from Harvard along Mass. Ave.
  • 67 bus from Alewife*
  • 79 bus from Alewife through Arlington Heights, along Mass. Ave.*

These three buses stop at Arlington Center, three blocks east of the Church:

  • 87 bus from Lechmere (Cambridge), through Somerville, Davis Square, & Tufts
  • 80 bus from Lechmere (Cambridge), through Somerville, Medford, & Tufts
  • 350 bus from Alewife, Burlington, Woburn, & Winchester.

*Runs only on weekdays

Highrock wants to include everyone around God's table, including those with physical challenges.  In both our strengths and our limitations, we each reflect essential elements of the image of God. We hope that you will feel welcome here so that the image of God we reflect as a church body might be more complete.

The Main Church Building

There is a designated handicapped parking space on Mass Ave in front of the church. Nearby is the paved pathway on the left front side of the building that leads to a wheelchair accessible elevator. The elevator door is right in front of the playground.

The elevator goes up to the sanctuary or down to the basement level (Highrock Commons), where we gather for fellowship and refreshments. Every part of the building is wheelchair accessible from those two points. A unisex ADA compliant restroom is located at the rear of the building on the sanctuary level.

The Mill

The Mill is accessible to wheelchairs and strollers.  A ramp is located at the main entrance through the parking lot, and all restrooms are wheelchair accessible.
