As followers of Jesus at Hillside Church we seek to love God with all of our heart, mind, soul and strength; love each other in humility and grace; and love our neighbours as ourselves.
The ministries described below are tangible ways for us to participate with Jesus’s ongoing ministry to us and to those around us. These offerings allow us to practice our love for God, each other and our neighbours.
As Christians, we belong to one another. This was true from the moment the first disciples were called to follow Jesus; and true for us today at Hillside Church.
Community groups offer an extension of our life together beyond the Sunday morning gathering for worship. By regularly meeting together in smaller groups for prayer, sharing, Bible discussion, and community service, our lives of faith and following Jesus directly impact our everyday lives at home, work, and school.
North Shore School of Mission
Hillside has developed The North Shore School of Mission in partnership with Columbia Bible College and church leaders from across the North Shore, in order to raise up and equip a new generation of leaders for the local church and global missions.
This is done through an accredited ministry apprenticeship program, an accredited part-time graduate program, and courses, classes and special events for everyone, to stretch faith, explore Christian beliefs and grow disciples.
Starting on Sunday, September 20th, 2020, we will have a children's ministry available during the service for grades 1-5.
Email Pauline Sanderson if you are planning on bringing your children with you to church on Sunday.
**It is important to us that, in addition to caring for the children well, all our leaders are appropriate persons for their roles. Criminal record checks are kept up to date for all adults in children’s ministries at Hillside and the church follows strict guidelines for childcare which are available to parents on request.
