Alun and Debbie have been serving in Heideveld since 2008. Their ministry includes serving at St Thomas' Church and working with Arise – a 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.

A few weeks ago I came across a quote by theologian Eugene Peterson that has stuck in my mind ever since: ‘Long obedience in the same direction’. Maybe you have felt that the last year has called for long obedience to COVID regulations! The months have seemed sluggish and slow and days have often been filled with the mundane. Yet as a nation and indeed across much of the world, humanity has persevered in taking precautions. Together we have acted in obedience to authority, with the hope of saving lives.
