Solid Joys

14th October

Hey guys, just wanted to share with you a great little app that has really helped me in my personal devotions recently. It’s the Solid Joys app that contains short daily nuggets of encouragement by Pastor John Piper.

While I don’t think that you can ever replace the joy and significance of digging into scripture for yourself, these kind of devotionals can certainly serve to supplement your devotional times. That has certainly been my experience with Solid Joys.

It’s a free app and is available from the App Store and from Google Play. Go check it out…

Big Bake

5th October

Sunday 18th October is Anti-Slavery Day. We will be marking the day and raising awareness about human trafficking at Hill City Church by doing a Big Bake!

The Big Bake is a great initiative from Tearfund that mixes shining a light on human trafficking with the creation of incredible cakes – that then get sold in order to raise money to help those in the grip of modern day slavery.

So why not come and join for our service at 10:30am and join the Big Bake?

5th October

This week in our Genesis series we looked at the effects of sin on Adam and Eve’s sons Cain and Abel. We saw that sin is serious, that the state of our hearts really matters, and also the great hope there is in the mercy of God for those who respond in faith. Below is the video to ‘Inside Out’ by Hillsong, and also the link to download this weeks notes.

19th September

In one of our recent Sunday gatherings our Open Doors rep, Sophie, shared the latest news from Syria and led us in prayer for our brothers and sisters in that broken and embattled part of the world. As part of her presentation she played clips from a couple of really powerful videos. Several people have asked how they can get access to the full videos, so we have posted them below. We pray that they will be a blessing and a challenge to you and will assist you as you pray for the persecuted church.

Responding to the refugee crisis

Posted by admin in All Blog Posts, News. Comments Off on Responding to the refugee crisis

3rd September

Much is being made of the refugee crisis that we are currently facing in Europe. Below is an article written by Pastor Dai Hankey that seeks to offer a gospel perspective on what is happening…

For several days I’ve been considering writing a post about the refugee crisis that is currently gripping Europe (I call it a ‘refugee’ crisis, not a ‘migrant’ crisis as the press have been referring to it as, because the difference is significant!) However, having just seen a horrifying photograph of the corpse of a tiny Syrian child washed up on a Mediterranean beach, I’ve decided I need to write!

Thing is…I honestly don’t know what to say.

There are so many voices speaking into the situation right now – from those pleading for mercy to those screaming ‘bolt the gates’. I must confess that I was tempted to launch … Read More »
