We are delighted to announce that in partnership with our friends at The Good Book Company we are now able to provide an online Bookstore for members and friends of Hill City Church.
The beauty of this bookstore is that we can promote some fabulous resources that we know are sure to bless and encourage you, while at the same time Hill City will benefit from 8% of all proceeds that will be pumped back into our local mission of reaching the valley for Christ.
The selection of books on offer is currently quite small but will be added to regularly, so make sure you check in regularly.
You can visit the Bookstore here.

Human trafficking is the fastest growing criminal industry on the planet.

Date: Thursday 19th February
Venue: The Hope Centre, Unit 5, Pavilion Estate, Pontnewynydd, NP4 6NF.
