"You are the light of the world, a city set on a hill cannot be hidden." 
~~ Matthew 5:14 ~~



Hillcrest United Church has been in its current location since February 1961. As a small, mature, dynamic and vital congregation, we are adventurous and wiling to take on new challenges.  We feel called to be in pastoral care, and to be of service to the community and God's world.

We are wheelchair accessible and welcoming of everyone. You don't have to have a background or connection in the church. Just show up and see what we are about!

The music is a blend, often with both heritage hymns and new music to challenge us.

Some dress in their Sunday best, but most dress casually.  Jeans and open neck shirts are perfectly acceptable. During the hot days of summer, shorts are sometimes worn.

Coffee, tea, juice and snacks are offered in the basement for those who want to stick around and chat! 

 

 

Our Mission Statement

Hillcrest United Church is a welcoming family of faith,

United and guided by our belief in God,

Revealed in the Holy Scriptures and in the life of Jesus Christ. 

 

Accepting everyone with grace, we come together to worship God. 

 

Empowered and led by the Holy Spirit,

We journey, sharing music, love, laughter, and tears,

As we meet the challenges within ourselves, our community, and our world.

 



A New Creed
 
We are not alone,
we live in God's world.
 
We believe in God:
who has created and is creating,
who has come in Jesus,
the Word made flesh,
to reconcile and make new,
who works in us and others
by the Spirit.
 
We trust in God.
 
We are called to be the Church:
to celebrate God's presence,
to live with respect in Creation,
to love and serve others,
to seek justice and resist evil,
to proclaim Jesus, crucified and risen,
our judge and our hope.
 
In life, in death, in life beyond death,
God is with us.
 
We are not alone.
