Mission Statement

The Portico is a gathering space where people come together for conversation, connection and community change. The Portico is committed to enhancing the social, artistic and spiritual fabric of Tampa through: *A Café where every cup of coffee purchased benefits the most vulnerable of our city *Serving the community *Silent prayer and meditation *A Hub for artists that fosters creativity and expression The twofold vision for the Downtown Campus is: 1. To form a serving and worshiping community in 2016, and 2. To create a community gathering space for downtown residents and workers.


The Portico is a "front porch" for spiritual people who would not gather at a traditional church. The intentional Christian community offers ways to be involved and serve, including an events team, a network of small groups, recovery groups, documentary nights, potluck Porch Parties, service days in the community and three weekly meditation times.

The Portico is the downtown initiative of Hyde Park United Methodist. Our community welcomes and encourages conversation about God, faith and service. We hope you will share your views, dreams, and interests as we journey together toward creating a more compassionate, loving city. Hyde Park United Methodist is one church with two campuses. The Portico extends the mission and vision of our congregation into the urban core of Tampa.
