Going BEYOND

Our congregation is gifted with energy and resources. New ideas for ministry and new opportunities to serve seem to emerge every week.  We are seeking to grow individually and make an impact on the world around us. Our goal is to be an expression of good religion for people across the city and beyond. 

 

One of our four Going 2020+ strategic priorities is "Going Beyond". This is why we have proposed that Living Spirit United Church join Hillhurst  and become a second campus. Going Beyond in presence and impact. 

 

Watch Don McLeod's presentation of the proposed vision of One Congregation, Two Campuses that was shared with the Hillhurst congregation on February 2, 2020.

Latest Updates

COVID-19 updates

Living Spirit Partnership
Detailed planning has been paused until further notice as both congregations remain focused on the current situation. A congregational meeting for May 3 was set to make a decision about going forward - it has been postponed. A new timeline is being created for the detailed planning to be completed, hopefully, this fall (pending physical distancing protocols). In the meantime, we're working with Living Spirit and the Chinook Winds Region to ensure a transition plan for the LS congregation.

Recruitment of a Second Full-Time Minister 
Due to COVID-19, we are in a time of financial uncertainty possibly for some time. As such, we have also postponed our recruitment of a second full-time minister. We will revisit this idea once we are through this season of social isolation.

Going Deeper
This will be achieved by building on the success of our current ministries to find new ways to engage people and impact the world. Four months into 2020, we never imagined we'd be reinventing ministry like we are now.  We hope you are finding ways to be supported and keep connected with the Hillhurst community. There is more coming so keep watching for new announcements!

Congregational Meeting - February 23

All motions on the floor for this meeting were passed. 

Come and review the 2019 budget and vote on the 2020 budget!

The Board will also present two additional motions at this meeting:

  1. That the Board establish a Search and Selection committee to begin the recruitment process to call a second full time minister.

  2. That the congregation approve the "One Congregation | Two Campuses" proposal in principle so we can proceed with detailed planning.

 

We will also provide an overview of a potential ministry team model so congregants can have an idea of how the expanded ministry team could serve both the Kensington and proposed Chinook campuses.
