Easter Sunday was a wonderful day for us at Hill City. Not only was it great to celebrate the resurrection of Jesus, it was also the first gathering at our new venue for Sunday worship – Pontnewynydd Chapel. One of the largest congregations we’ve ever had came together to enjoy a great time of sung worship, including a great rendition of ‘He has Risen’ by the Hill City kids. There were various readings and a joyful time of prayer before Lead Pastor, Dai Hankey, preached on the resurrection from the account in Luke’s gospel. Good, fresh coffee and crates of home made cake were consumed after the service as the Hill City family started to get used to the new surroundings.

If so then hopefully, like me, you’ll be buzzin about a new smartphone app that I got hold of last week. PrayerMate is a fantastic app that has … Read More »
Sunday 13th April 2014 was a significant day for us at Hill City as we said goodbye to Pontypool Active Living Centre (PALC) as the venue for our Sunday gatherings. It’s fair to say that the last 10 months have been phenomenal for us as a church as we have grown in so many ways:
Numerically (our congregation has almost doubled)
Pastorally (with more saints than ever loving, serving and caring for one another)
Missionally (through ministries such as CAP and Foodbank as well as through our gospel communities and personal evangelism)
Theologically (the teaching at Hill City has gone from strength to strength, with the Colossians series especially impacting)
It seemed fitting to sign off at PALC by making the most of their pool facilities and baptising some of those who have come to faith in Jesus in the last few months, and what … Read More »
