Following a short-term trip to South Africa, Alun and Debbie returned to serve there long-term in 2008. Their ministry includes serving at St Thomas' Church, Heideveld and working with Arise - an Christian organisation that helps vulnerable children.
St Thomas' Church is in the heart of a community deeply affected by drugs, gang culture and the legacy of apartheid. Alun teaches the Bible in Sunday services and disciples young men.
At Arise, Debbie raises the profile of fostering and adoption in the local church and supports families that have taken these steps.
They have four children: Likhona, Ilana, Malachi and Timothy.

South Africa is now in its eighth week of a very strict national lockdown. The enormity of this crisis on our fragile nation is already starting to show – widespread hunger, unemployment, gender-based violence. Statistics show that these are growing daily and today a report revealed a spike in the number of child abandonments.
Winter is approaching and our peak is still a long way off. We need to immense ourselves regularly in God’s word and remember the truths of the gospel. Alun has been taking our congregation through the Psalms each morning. Through these simple studies we are reminded that God is our refuge, our provider, our very-great Saviour, our friend, our comforter and our King!
