Hillcrest Mennonite Church is located in New Hamburg, Ontario, 1.5 km west of New Hamburg at Hwy 7 & 8 and Waterloo Regional Rd. 1. Ministers Jan Steckley and Kevin Peters Unrau served in 2013 as congregational leaders. In 1965 there were 162 members; in 1975, 207; in 1985, 229; in 1995, 250; in 2000, 251. The congregation has been affiliated with the Western Ontario Mennonite Conference (1964-1988), Mennonite Church (1964-1999), Mennonite Church Eastern Canada (1988-) and the Conference of Mennonites in Canada / Mennonite Church Canada (1995-). The language of worship is English.

The congregation began services and formally organized in 1964. The first building was occupied in 1964. Henry Yantzi is considered the founding leader of the group. The congregation originated through church planting from East Zorra Mennonite in 1964 due to the latter's increasing numbers.
