Four Sons Family Story

Last year, as part of the “Chairs Tell Stories” campaign, we wrote the names of our sons down on the cards that were put under the stage – these were the names of the people we were trusting for to know Jesus Christ… William, Dewet, Chris and Henry. They were all...

An Alpha Epiphany

Damascean experiences – which of course is what Saul, later known as the Apostle Paul, experienced – are to be envied. The sort of experiences where God manifests himself in a blinding light, making it clear that He truly is The Great I Am. “As he neared Damascus on...

A Girl. A Healing. Her God.

At the beginning of the Transformed Series, my prayer was that it would transform each member of my family individually and that it would transform us as a family. I prayed as I went into the sessions. I was expectant of what God was going to do and each time I went I...

The CityHill Together family has been on a journey of Church planting over the last seven years, and what an adventure it has been. I have chosen to write this article in a letter format to communicate more personally to those of you who have been on this journey with...

A Story of Hope in Hopelessness

At first glance Greg was a regular guy – polite, educated, neatly dressed and hard working. Greg had a good life and as a young man his future looked very bright. But without warning things changed. Challenges in the economy left Greg unemployed, and with no close...

Malawi Mission Report

It was a tough decision – the cost of responding to the call would literally require all of our cash reserves – however, we had faced this same situation so many times before – when responding to some of the larger disasters in the past such as the Syrian refugee...

Better Together

If you are anything like me, by February most of the resolutions I have made for the year have already been broken. Somehow no matter how much we try to be better, we fail. There is a reason for this. You don't decide in February to run the Comrades Marathon for one...
