We are City Lights

City Lights is a happy and growing church community in Port Elizabeth. Together, we glorify God through gospel-centered lives and service to our city.

City Lights is led by Dave & Megan Shepherd who moved from Cape Town to Port Elizabeth with their family in order to plant and establish the church.

Over a period of a few years God has added to us people some of whom have become leaders among us. We are convinced that God intends to use us all to reach the city of Port Elizabeth through Gospel inspired invitation, acts of love and service.

Our Name

In starting the church, we chose a name that immediately set a tone of life, purpose, and devotion to God and his mission. Since we long to see people come to know God, we wanted a name that would resonate as much with undecided people as with those who already love and follow Jesus.

In a very real sense, City Lights is a proclamation of what each of us have become. It is also a provocation for what we are committed to being, lights; to all who don’t yet know Him, to those who receive Him and even to those who will constantly refuse Him.
