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

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 »

It was great to have Nigel James with us at Hill City on Sunday 5th July. As well as preaching the Word to us, Nigel also mentioned the church planting initiative that he is involved in coordinating here in Wales. The ministry is called Waleswide and it seeks to promote the cause of church planting and church strengthening across the evangelical spectrum in Wales.

You can find out more about Waleswide and how you can be praying for the nation here.



Compassion Kids

20th June

As a church we are delighted to be working in partnership with a Compassion project in Burkina Faso, though whom we have seen dozens of children sponsored out of poverty and blessed with education, health care and gospel teaching. We have also been privileged to help the project acquire play equipment, mosquito nets and have extra classrooms built. However, one of the frustrations over recent years is that we haven’t had many profiles of children in need of sponsorship from that particular project. But that has just changed!

We have recently been given the profiles of 18 precious children who are in need of sponsorship. We aim to get many of them sponsored at our Compassion evening with Written in Kings this coming Friday. However, if you would be interested in sponsoring one of these children please do get in touch with us … Read More »



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:

WEEK OF MISSION:

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

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



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!
