Norfolk, VA

Sunday's @ 9:15am, 11am & 6pm

Thank you so much for visiting the Upward Norfolk campus page. You will find a relaxed casual atmosphere as soon as you walk into the door. We envision a new way of doing church. A place where anyone can come and discover what it means to have a real and vital relationship with God and His Son, Jesus Christ. A place without a high-pressured environment and a list of religious rules. We want to inspire and motivate people to become all that God wants them to be. We can't wait to see you there!
