Born from prayer

Hilltop was born out of a prayer meeting that began in 2006, and has only gotten stronger. For 17 years, we’ve been praying that God would revive Boston, and raise up another global student volunteer missions movement out of the campuses of the Northeast.

Today, that intercession and devotional prayer meeting is going morning and night almost every day of the week, and it remains the nucleus of our thriving community.

From Boston, outward

Our dream is to see students, professionals, and families come alive in their walk with Jesus, to touch the needs of the community around us, and to prepare every person who walks through our doors to go share Jesus to the ends of the earth.

God brought you here for a reason, and through prayer and community, we are confident that He will show you what He wants to do with your life.

Alpha Course

Watch the Alpha Course trailer

Alpha is an introductory course about Christianity that is designed for anyone exploring faith. It is designed to be an open, safe space to ask questions about God and life, both easy and hard, and it is centered around discussion, not just providing the "right" answer to everything. We don't hold any expectation of any particular outcome at the end of the course, and it is not expected that you would join our church.

We have a meal together (food is provided), and then watch a short Alpha film, followed by open discussion. We'd love to have you join us! Enter your details below, and we'll get you signed up. There is no cost - we're providing this course as an outreach of Hilltop Church.

To join our current Alpha course, or find out when the next one starts, send us an email at

Community Groups

Community Groups are the center of where small group fellowship, discipleship, and intentional study of the Bible happen throughout the week. Our groups are exclusively for those who attend Hilltop as their home church, as their main purpose is to disciple Hilltop members. We have mostly in person groups and a few Zoom options.

To join a group, view the full list, select one, and hit "Join This Group"

It is our great joy and privilege to serve our children. We have a talented, caring, Jesus loving and fun loving team who teach our kids. Our weekly program is built around the The Gospel Project children’s curriculum that walks through the Bible Genesis to Revelation and looks to find the Christ connection in every chapter and page of the Bible. Our goal is that our children would encounter Christ, learn sound doctrine, be filled with the Holy Spirit and transformed by the power of the gospel from their earliest years.
We have programs for hildren ages 1-12 during the message on Sunday.

This isn’t just any youth group: through teaching and discipleship, we are aiming to CHALLENGE our youth to become who God has made them to be.

This is the generation of those who seek Him, who seek the face of the God of Jacob.” — Psalm 24:6
