Groups are the heartbeat of church life at Hillsong. Church is not a Sunday event but the gathering of people throughout the week doing life together Monday-Sunday and everything in between.
The Christian life is not intended to be lived in isolation but in community with other believers which is vital for transformation, and it’s only when you are in this community that you really begin to be transformed to look like Jesus. Our groups share a meal together, pray together, discuss the Bible together and do life together.
We believe that much of the solution and resource can be found within the local church, where together, with the power of partnership, we can play our part to eradicate poverty and injustice globally and be the beacon of hope and support in our communities locally.
In these uncertain times, we believe the church is called to be a beacon of hope and support for the people in our community.
As Christians, we have the opportunity to rise up – being concerned not just about our own needs but asking the question – ‘How can I help? Our church community has been rallying together to provide food donations for hampers to vulnerable people, and to feed 250 homeless people everyday in Trafalgar Square.
Our global level partnerships and our local level initiatives provide an opportunity for everyone in our church to play their part in seeing social justice come to those who have been marginalised through some form of injustice.
We focus on child sponsorship, breaking generational poverty, supporting communities, fighting human trafficking, caring for the elderly, helping the homeless, and providing relief and empowerment to refugees.
“What’s the ‘evangelism strategy’ for Hillsong?” In other words, how do we extend the message of the gospel? We’re completely sold out to see the world won for Christ therefore we simply want to empower every single person who calls Hillsong home to reach their day-to-day world because we all have people in our lives who don’t know Jesus. We’re not all called to be evangelists, but we can all be soul-winners.
