Our Current Status

We will have simple worship services, since people need spiritual support during crisis times. We will not gather together in person, but online. The service will be available via the Northside Facebook page and on the "Service Videos" page above for as long as necessary.

All other events and activities at the church have been suspended until further notice. Office hours will be by appointment and only as needed. Please watch this page for information.


Welcome to Northside Presbyterian Church in Blacksburg, Virginia. We hope this site will help you learn more about us and our witness for Christ. We strive to recognize and nurture the Christ in ourselves and each person that we encounter along the way. Our church is a thriving community of believers, and lovers of the word of God. Northside has a long tradition of outreach and service to its members and the community. We invite you to "Come Walk With Us" each Sunday as we join in the fellowship of Christ.

Please Join Us

Online Worship Service: 10:00 am
