AS an evangelical body, Hillcrest Baptist Church recognises and is obedient to the biblical command to disciple the lost in this fallen world.

This includes not only the support of missionaries who reach out to people in foreign and far-flung lands, but also those in the church’s very own backyard, ie. it’s immediate community.

Therefore, as an outreach to the local Hillcrest community, the Quest for Truth Series was launched in April 2016. This comprises events that take place three times a year, addressing culturally relevant topics from a biblical perspective.

Presented in an informal manner, the objective of these events is to engage people who wouldn’t otherwise go to a church, but in these instances are interested to hear answers to many of the questions they themselves very often ask.

In each instance the presentation is either delivered by one of the church’s teaching staff or a visiting international speaker, and it is followed by a question and answer session. Supper and fellowship are enjoyed thereafter.
