In the second part of Acts 2:46 we see that while they were gathering in big groups in the temple courts, they were also meeting in smaller settings regularly! They were doing life together; eating, sharing, helping, and having those close spiritual friendships with one another. The same is true for us at Hillcrest Church. We believe that to CONNECT SMALL is just as important as CELEBRATE BIG. The primary place where we connect small is a LIFEGROUP - a place where someone notices your spiritual growth and cares when a tough thing happens to you. When we CONNECT SMALL, it is all about authentic relationships - unpacking your walk with Jesus, how the sermons or worship are affecting you, and trusting others will share the same with you.
WHAT TO EXPECT
At Hillcrest we believe committed relationships within Christ-centred small groups are best for life-transformation. We also believe we are called to be a cell-based church -- small cells of spiritual life multiplying throughout the community where people are accepted and accepting, loved and loving, encouraged and encouraging, forgiven and forgiving, served and serving, experiencing life-change and growth as followers of Christ.
LifeGroups meet on different days and times throughout the year, both offsite and onsite.
