Thousand Hills seeks to reach out to our local community through service both by individuals and by the church community.
The first Saturday of each month (except in July and August) the church is open from 10.00-12.00 to offer clothing, coffee and conversation. Those in need are welcome to come and choose suitable clothes for themselves and their families from our large selection of clothing and footwear, as well as taking home linens and toys. Join us for a cup of coffee, homemade snacks and a chance to chat while you find clothing to suit you. Please email the church if you would like information or if you would like to help in any way.
Thousand Hills supports a number of different global missionaries and we welcome you to add to our support.

Richard and Pita Zevenbergen – Brazil
Pita and Richard Zevenbergen have been missionaries in Brazil since 2005. God called them to Brazil to train missionaries and to urge the Brazilian church to do mission work. Richard is an ordained Pastor of the VPE and of the Brazilian Assemblies of God. Pita takes care of their three sons, Rafael 12 yrs, Christoph 9 yrs and Michael 8 yrs old, and teaches languages in the mission school.
In 2007 they started an international mission training school where dozens of Brazilians have been trained and sent out as cross-cultural missionaries across the world. Recently the international mission training school has been embraced by the Brazilian Assemblies of God and moved to a new location on a big farm where the students can live full time on the campus. The school terrain is also used for retreats and a congress center in the weekends. They also planted a church in Joinville through which many people have come to Christ and been discipled. The church is now part of the local Brazilian Assemblies of God. Richard has become the vice president of Chi Alpha (student ministry) in Brazil and is involved in evangelistic student ministry as well as preaching in churches, seminars and congresses. You can follow Richard on Facebook.
