The Engine Room

Posted by admin in All Blog Posts, Events. Comments Off on The Engine Room

22nd October

As a church we need to pray more, not only for our own personal and pastoral issues, but also for our communities, our valley, for salvation and for revival.

Prayer is the engine that drives the church. Therefore, starting on Friday 6th November we are launching ‘The Engine Room’ – a monthly half-night of prayer. The Engine Room will take place at The Hope Centre and will run from 6pm until 12pm. Some may want to come and pray for the whole time. Others may want to come and just pray for a section of it. However, our desire is that ALL members of Hill City join with us as we press-in, cry out, reach up and seek God together. Christians from other local churches are also very welcome to join us.

If we don’t pray we cannot expect God to move in our church … Read More »

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?

One for the Girls

3rd June

On Monday 8th June the ladies of Hill City are being treated to a special evening of sweet refreshments, good music and inspiring stories of faith.

The evening will feature healthy, yummy food prepared and served by Hill City’s ladies, along with live music from Abi Williams and testimonies from ladies of how faith in Jesus has affected their lives.

It promises to be a fantastic evening, but I’m afraid that it’s not one that the fellas will be able to enjoy as this is strictly One or the Girls!

Venue: Cold Barn Farm, Trevethin

Starts: 7:30pm

Entry: Free

As part of our mission week we are excited to be hosting an evening at Bread of Heaven cafe in Pontypool at which we will seek to answer some of the big questions about life, God and the universe.

The event will take place on Thursday 11th June, starting at 7:30pm.

Week of Mission

Posted by admin in All Blog Posts, Events, News. Comments Off on Week of Mission

21st May

On 7th June we finish our series in the Book of Acts.

Over the last 12 months we have been challenged as a church as we have studied the explosive origins of the early church and the gospel implications for us today. Therefore, as a statement of intent we are going to sign-off from the Book of Acts by starting as we mean to carry on – on  mission! Consequently, we have set aside 7th – 13th June as a week of mission. As well as seeking to be intentional about personal evangelism and reaching out as gospel communities, there will also be a variety of outreach events and activities taking place during this week, details of which will be added to this page in due course. But here’s the plan so far:


Sunday 7th June
Prayer Meeting
Venue t.b.c

Monday 8th June
Ladies food and music evening (feat. music by … Read More »

Invisible Chains

Posted by admin in All Blog Posts, Events, News. Comments Off on Invisible Chains

15th May

A few months ago Pastor Dai Hankey spoke at a Hill City event seeking to raise awareness about the reality of human trafficking both globally and locally.

Further to that event, for those who have a heart to discover more about sex trafficking and how we could and should be responding to it then we encourage you to attend ‘Invisible Chains’ – an unforgettable, ‘in your face’, live experience that confronts us with the uncomfortable reality of sex trafficking, challenging us to stand against this brutal injustice.

This event is organised by our friends at Safe From Slavery and we cannot recommend attending highly enough!
