Greeters are an integral part of Hillhurst’s ministry of radical hospitality. They are the first people that our community sees on Sunday mornings or at events. In addition to providing a warm hello and a friendly smile, our greeters hand out our bulletins and provide assistance as needed.
It has been said that coffee is a sacred and essential beverage to many during our 9:05am and 10:45am service. To provide radical hospitality at Sunday worship services through providing coffee and tea, in real mugs, for everyone to enjoy throughout the service.
Beautiful and inspiring visuals are an important part of our worship services. If you prefer to stay behind the scenes in your volunteering, then this may be the perfect opportunity for you! The PowerPoint operators play a vital role by moving through a slideshow during the service. When signing up, there is the option of volunteering for both services or just one.

Community Lunch Ministry
This is a huge opportunity for engagement within the church and outer community. Currently the community lunch ministry involved getting together with a group to create a meal plan, shop for groceries, prepare and serve on Sunday at noon. The Team Lead for each lunch will purchase groceries and plan the menu for the meal for 150 people. There must be a gluten free and vegetarian option for each meal. On Sunday mornings we ask that the Lunch Ministry team arrive at church early to ensure that lunch is ready to be served by 11:45am. If you would like to volunteer to support the lunch ministry without organizing the meal, there is the option of signing up to be a Lunch Helper or assisting with clean up after each meal.
