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:

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!
We are delighted to announce that our next Soul Sessions event is going to be on Friday 26th June at Cwmbran Costa and will feature South Wales band Written in Kings (check out the video below).
The evening will consist of the usual blend of good coffee, good music, and a gospel message. We will also be profiling the incredible work of Compassion and providing an opportunity for children to be sponsored out of poverty from all over the world, including children at our partnership project in Burkina Faso.
Doors open at 7:30pm.
Entry is free.
A collection towards the work of Compassion will also be taken.
Last year we were privileged to have Simon Guillebaud sharing about his work with Great Lakes Outreach in Burundi.
Well we recently received this email from Simon:
A few months after Burundi’s war kicked off in 1993, a tract was circulated entitled ‘Abantu b’Imana bagiye he?’
Where did God’s people go?
That was the question many were asking in a country so apparently Christianised – how could so many so-called Christians not stop the horrific violence taking place? Where had they disappeared to? Obviously there were more superficial converts betraying by their actions what they confessed with their lips than true disciples living out their costly faith in Jesus.
Well, we don’t want to be accused of the same in this latest Burundi crisis – not that I am in any way saying there is a comparable war in the pipeline. Actually, mercifully few people have … Read More »
We are delighted to unveil the new-look Hill City website.
Regular visitors will notice that the new version of the site is far brighter, cleaner and fresher looking.
There is also a new logo that was developed by a team of Hill City members.
We would like to thank all those who have been involved in the design process.
