Through our link with Valley Commandos we are privileged to enjoy good links with brothers and sisters in Korea, especially the saints at Sarang Community Church in Seoul. One of the highlights of our year in 2013 was welcoming Pastor Sam Ko from Sarang, along with scores of international students from WEST, to join us at Hill City Church for an evening of prayer and praise.
We are therefore delighted to announce that on Sunday 9th March we will once again be joined by Sam Ko and another army of WEST students and Korean intercessors for another prayer and praise event. Our venue for the evening will be Pontnewynydd Methodist Church. The event starts at 7pm and is open to all. Why not come and join us for a wonderful evening of gospel preaching, passionate worship and fervent prayer?

Last night (Sunday 16th February) was a very special night for us as a church as we got to celebrate God’s saving grace and baptise our new friend, Lloyd.
Lloyd, a former soldier, came to faith a few months ago and has become a very, very special part of Hill City Church since. His baptism (which you can see below) was not only a great testimony to the saving power of Jesus, it was also a fantastic way to formally welcome Lloyd into the Hill City family.
Glory to God!
You can listen to Lloyd’s testimony here.

The Eastern Valley Food Bank recently celebrated it’s first birthday. The impact that the Food Bank has had on thousands of people in the valley cannot be underestimated and a huge “thank you” has to be said said to the dozens of volunteers from churches across the area who help to keep the Food Bank running. The project manager, Hill City’s Jen Taylor, has written the following to mark Food Bank’s first year:
“When a food bank to cover the Eastern Valley was first envisaged, nobody could have foreseen the level of need seen in the year since we first opened the doors at The Hope Centre on 28th January 2013.
In this year we have given out a total of 43,730 meals, feeding 2,720 adults and 1,653 children. This equates to a total of 32.6 tonnes of food.
We remain overwhelmed by … Read More »
Our desire is to be a church that plants churches that plant churches. This time last year we sent 2 couples to the Rhondda valleys to plant a new church and this year we have several projects in the pipeline. One of the areas that we will be planting is the Taff Bargoed Valley. Simon Matheson, who is heading up the church plant, explains more:
The Taff Bargoed Valley must be one of the smallest of the Welsh valleys. Home to not many more than 10,000 people in the villages of Nelson, Treharris, Trelewis, and Bedlinog, you could be forgiven for not even knowing of its existence. The area is beautiful, especially the Taff Bargoed Park running through the centre of the valley, but as with much of the valleys, many of the common problems associated with the closure of the … Read More »
