Invitation to Stewardship:
One of the primary ways we are raising awareness and support for the new church movement is through the Pentecost Offering. The money collected through this Special offering is evenly distributed between the new church ministry and the region where the giving congregation is located. Our support is needed more than ever to help build the momentum of the new church movement. To meet this challenge, our continued participation in the Pentecost Offering and support of the new church ministry are essential. Thanks for your generous support.

We invite you to continue with your tithes and offering through one of the options below. We know many of you are facing challenges due to COVID-19 and offer understanding for any decision you make.

  1. Online through our page on Canada Helps
  2. Mail a cheque to Hillcrest Christian Church (Disciples of Christ), 2 Vaughan Road, Toronto, ON M6G 2N1

“Go Now in Peace” 

Go now in peace. Never be afraid.
God will go with you each hour of ev’ry day.
Go now in faith, steadfast, strong and true.
Know He will guide you in all you do.
Go now in love, and show you believe.
Reach out to others so all the world can see.
God will be there, watching from above.
Go now in peace, in faith and in love.
