  • Fellowship

  • Guests



You can expect a fairly traditional service in a beautiful sanctuary:

  • Hymns

  • Robed Ministers and Choir

  • Extensive Time for the Lord’s Supper

Everything about the service is very consistent from week to week, other than the preaching, which varies in style depending on the speaker.

Attendees dress however is comfortable for them.

The congregation may be small, but it is a group of very friendly people who make you feel at home with their warm welcome and delicious food. The church is multicultural and has many members who volunteer their time.




HYMN SING / WORSHIP BAND @ 10:45 a.m. – 11:00 a.m

Before the beginning of our Sunday worship service we have a time of singing together.

Hymn Sing

  • Most Sundays, a member of our Chancel Choir leads us in the singing of hymns chosen by you. Prepare to shout out loud the page number of your favourite hymn for the whole congregation to enjoy.

Worship Band

  • Alternately, the Hillcrest Worship Band plays worship songs during this time and encourages the congregation to join them in praising God.



WORSHIP SERVICE @ 11:00 am – 12:30 pm

  • We sing hymns from the Chalice Hymnal along to an organ or piano. We are joined by the chancel choir, except during the summer months.

  • We follow the Revised Common Lectionary for our readings from the Bible.

  • We read from the New Revised Standard Version (NRSV) of the Bible.

  • We hear a word from God in the form of a sermon from an assortment of speakers.

  • We pray together as a community.

  • We give our tithes and offerings.

  • We partake of the Lord’s Supper together each week.

Youth Sunday School occurs at this time.




After the worship service, we invite you to join us in the Hutchison Parlour (rear of the church building) for a time of fellowship and refreshments. This is the time we spend to catch-up with one another, welcome guests, highlight announcements and celebrate special occasions. We hope that you get to experience some of the fun activities the different Hillcrest committees put on during the year and enjoy our company.




If you are visiting Hillcrest for the first time, we invite you to sign the guest register as you enter the front doors on Vaughan Rd. We look forward to meeting you and welcoming you to our vibrant congregation.
