hillcrest presbyterian family church
To be a beacon of Jesus’ light in the community. By spreading His love, His word and His care.
Hillcrest Hospital is a specialized hospital. At present the hospital has 175 beds. The hospital takes patients who need ongoing nursing care, referred from hospitals in the entire province of KZN.
Our Church has been involved in the ministry at the Hillcrest hospital for more than 25 years.
Every month a team goes to the hospital to share the Word of God with the patients, the majority of whom are wheelchair bound. This necessitates the team wheeling patients from the wards to the Chapel. It is amazing to see the relationships which have been built between the patients and this dedicated team of volunteers from the Church.
Meetings consist of songs of praise after which a sermon is delivered. Communion is offered two or three times a year which is a very special time for the patients.
It is always a blessing to see these people, some of whom are severely handicapped, worship the Lord with such absolute joy – one always leaves the hospital with a deep sense of humility.
