Our church was originally a joint dedication of Anglican and Methodist when it was first in use in 1968. These joint services ceased in 1990, now it continues to be Anglican/Evangelical.
We are a small congregation following the Common Worship format for services. Our choice of songs/hymns is adaptable, changing from contemporary to traditional according to needs. Come and visit us and join us in our growth in faith and worshipping the Lord.
Our  priest is the Reverend Donna Williams, also shared with St Georges Unsworth.

We have recently become one parish with St Georges, Unsworth, our parish name is now HILLOCK AND UNSWORTH THE PARISH OF THE RESURRECTION. Our church names will remain the same, we are one parish with two churches.

We have a few car parking spaces outside church including two disability spaces. Further parking can be accessed via local amenities.

There is no post code for our Church.

The Church is next door to vicarage.
