Young People Ministeries

hillcrest presbyterian family church


To be a beacon of Jesus’ light in the community. By spreading His love, His word and His care.





We believe our teens are the energy of the church. They are the future leaders of tomorrow and our aim is to guide them on a journey with God.


Project Life Changer is a thrilling gap year program where young people
are able to take the opportunity to experience and stretch themselves.
It is a highly intentional program that allows young people the ability
to identify and learn new skills and build themselves up spiritually and
personally. You are given the opportunity to work within different
ministries and explore your passions and spiritual gifts. For more info.

Being the next generation of leaders we also expose our teens to being a
part of the church especially on a Sunday morning so whether they are
great at singing, sound, working with children we encourage them to
volunteer in an area they are passionate about.


Our teen youth is called SWITCH YOUTH and runs on a Friday night from
19:30-21:30. It is a time where teens have loads of fun, find belonging
and where they are exposed to life changing lessons


The Confirmation course runs for 13 weeks, and involves a student being
teamed up with a mentor in a one-on-one relationship. Each student will
learn about the important pillars of the Christian faith as well as read
the Gospel of Luke to learn more about the life of Jesus. The power of
the course comes from teaming up the students with a mature Christian
mentor who can help to answer some of their burning questions in a
non-judgemental and non-threatening way. Signing up for the course
requires commitment for the full 13 weeks, but the results are worth it!


Our children are essential to the spiritual growth and upliftment of our church. We view children as important and valuable. When coming to a church service with a child you will feel welcomed and relaxed. We offer two programs specifically for our children’s spiritual growth that you are welcome to bring your child to.


Jive is our Friday night youth program. Kids have fun with some songs, a
story, a special activity and some food.
Drop your little ones off and
come and join our parent group run at the same time or have an hour and a half off parent duty.
We welcome kids from grade 1 – 7 and Jive runs
from 17:30 – 19:00.


Kidzone is run on a Sunday morning during the church service (9am). Kids
stay in church up untill the offering is taken up and then they are
taken over to Kidzone for a time of songs and learning more about God
and being a friend of Jesus. We take kids from the age of 1 year till
the age of 12 years. Sometimes our older kids help out with the younger
ones too.


Once a year we hold our holiday club. This is a program we run during
the first week of the June/July holidays for kids from grade 1-7. Kids
have a week where they get to experience Jesus, make some awesome
crafts, eat some awesome food and have some amazing FUN!!!

Jive parents


On Friday evenings while our Jive youth programme takes place from
17h30-19h00, we welcome all the parents dropping their children off for
Jive to stay and join us for a light meal and coffee.

It is really just a time of fellowship and relaxing after a busy
week has past. We generally do a bring and share snack or burgers/boerie rolls
on the skottle.
It is great to meet new parents and get to know each other better, to catch up on the week and chat about life in general.
found there were a lot of parents dropping their children and going for
a cup of coffee or dinner before fetching them again, and so we decided
to offer this at the church. It has become such a great social time of
fellowship, and we look forward to seeing it grow.
