Sports Day Weekend Service Opportunities

Sports Day is a key time of community interaction for the town of Mount Albert and is a strategic time for us as a church to seek to minister in meaningful ways. Please find below two ways to be involved during this weekend celebration.

Carnival Workers Dinner
Mark it in your calendars! Our yearly Carnival Workers 
Dinner for the midway workers from the Sports Day festivities will be held on Wednesday, May 30, 2018 @ 6:00pm. Please speak to Pastor Scott, Bill Havercroft or Sarah Neve for more information. A sign up form will be available shortly.

Community Dinner
Each year on the Saturday evening of the Sports Day weekend, a community meal is hosted at the Community Centre. We have been asked to host this meal on Saturday, June 2, 2018 from 5:00 - 7:00pm. What a great opportunity for community involvement! We are looking for those to help plan for the meal, some to host the event (serving food, greeting visitors, and clean up), and other willing to provide a cold meat tray, salads, or a dozen dinner rolls. For more information on this event, please speak with Pastor Scott. A sign up form will be available at the Welcome Centre.


Service Cancellation

attention.jpgPlease note that due to the wonderful icy winter weather and the forecast throughout the night and into tomorrow morning, we've decided to cancel our service tomorrow morning (April 15, 2018) rather than cause any risk to your safety trying to get to church. 

In lieu of attending the service, we ask that you take a few minutes tomorrow morning to pray for three church families of your choice. This way we can continue to act as the body of Christ, even though we will not be gathered in the same room together. 

Please pass this information along to any other attendees of Hillside Church whom you may speak with. We look forward to seeing you again on Sunday, April 22nd here at Hillside!

Thanks, stay safe and warm, and perhaps you can host a neighbourhood "shovelling party" tomorrow. Be blessed.

Our first prayer event of 2018 will be a "Day of Prayer" to be held from 9:30 am on Saturday, February 10 to 9:30 am on Sunday, February 11th.

Please join us in signing up for 15 minute periods of prayer over this 24 hour period. Feel free to sign up for as many 15 minute segments as you wish, as our aim is that each slot will be filled, enabling us to complete a full 24 hours with continuous prayer. Sign up as individuals, couples or families and because prayer can occur anywhere, we hope that this allows for involvement by all.

An online signup form can be accessed by clicking here and a physical copy of the signup form is available in the foyer. A guide for your 15 minutes of prayer will also be available at the Welcome Centre.
