Welcome to Hillside Online!

Welcome to our online platform for worship during our interim suspension of in-person gatherings.

Our service live feed begins Sundays at 10 am. You’ll be able to tune in starting 15 minutes before we begin.
See you soon!

Online Service

More Information

We know that doing church at home or in small groups will be difficult with young children. That’s why we’ve set up a Kids Korner page with some helpful resources!

Click the Kids Korner button below to find:

1. The link for our weekly kids Zoom call


2. A Special Video (15 min) from Marnie.

Say hello,  listen to her read a story and do an activity at the end of the video.

We encourage you to get this set up before the live stream starts: maybe in another room. Don’t forget your colouring tools!

Want to connect more personally after one of our services? Join our after-service video call.  One of our pastors will host a Zoom group call that will begin right after our online service ends.  If you would like to join in, click on the link below or use this Zoom meeting ID: 88135116234.
Using Zoom for the first time:
  1. You do not need to create an account or sign in.
  2. When you click the link we provided you will be prompted to download software to run Zoom on your PC/Mac or phone.
  3.  After you download the software, install it and Zoom will complete the installation.
  4. Click “join meeting”. If it doesn’t work at once, go back to the Zoom link and re-click it.
  5. Before you join the meeting,  check your microphone, speakers and camera.
  6. You do not need a camera, your name will appear in the meeting.
The church of Jesus has always gathered in homes! So this is nothing new. It is unusual for us not to gather also as a larger group. Here are some tips for how to prepare to have church at your house.
  1. Prepare. It might be tempting to stay in bed right until the live stream starts (or to even just … stay in bed!) We’d love to encourage you to actually set an alarm, get up with enough time to breakfast, and spend some time in prayer that God would help you be aware of him in this time. We’re also going to keep practicing communion together, so before the service starts, think about grabbing some bread and juice with you to wherever in your home you’re participating.
  2. Participate. It will be weird to sing along with a video at your house. Embrace the “weird!” The God of the Bible is far less concerned with how good you sound than he is about your decision to sing his praise. He says that there’s something about our singing that blesses him: which is worth considering as we decide whether or not to sing.
    This also means paying attention to the sermon. Try to behave like you would in our building. Don’t multi-task on emails, check your phone, cook breakfast, get coffee. Sit. Listen. Take notes.
  3. Practice. After the service has finished take some time to process what God has been saying to you. Write something down that you think you should pay attention to over the next few days. Practice silence as you think this through. Then turn to the people who watched with you (or call up a friend) and tell them what you need to put into practice for this next week.

We will live stream our entire worship service (which includes singing). If you’d like to sing more, we’ve compiled some resources at here.

Online Prayer Meetings

Our prayer times are pretty simple. We often listen to a song, read a Psalm, and then those who wish to, can pray. Sometimes we have specific themes we pray for, but mostly we pray “kingdom prayers” for our church, our community and our world. We take privacy seriously, so if we do pray for people, we are careful to keep confidences. In addition, Zoom, the online platform we use, also has a strong privacy policy.

We will be gathering together online to pray at the following times.

Sunday: 9:00 – 9:30 AM

Weekdays: 8:00 – 8:30 AM

You can join any of these video meetings when they are running.
