Jack Parow: A whole new sound

Jack Parow and acoustic music, this has got to be one of the more oxymoronic images that could arise in the South African music industry. But somehow it seems to work, not only for the audience but for Parow himself. At first the idea of attending this show was somewhat daunting to an English speaker from ...

I love you Mom – Mother Day 2014

Moms, one of God’s greatest creations. These beautiful creatures give up everything for us, their time, their money, their looks, their love, selflessly and with lots of nagging. To honour moms everywhere we got a group of our church’s youth together to talk about their moms. We asked them for early memories of their mom, great moments ...

The Meaning of Easter

When wanting to know what the meaning of Easter is, we went directly to the experts. Well… sort of. We went into our children’s church, called CityHill Kids, and pulled random kids out of their classrooms to answer the question, ‘What is the meaning of Easter?’ The bright lights and the four adults staring was an intimidating ...

Where do you feel closest to nature?

Recently Contiki ran an awesome competition to win a trip to Costa Rica. All you had to answer was, “where do you feel closest to nature?” My answer is in water. It’s part of who we are, so much so that we would die without it. Some of the greatest adventures happen out at sea, ...

Alone on Valentines Day

It’s that time of the year again, when love fills the air, led by a charge of half naked arrow shooting babies. The day may be entirely saturated with evil commercial intentions but most of society continues to go along with it. Peer pressured to spend money on those you love or suffer the eternal ...
