Months of in-house conceptualization, art and animation design culminated in "Once Upon A Time In 30 Years”, an animated re-telling of the story of City Harvest Church. Starting with Jesus Christ, the center of it all, the story details how CHC began with humble beginnings and went on to experience two decades of great revival marked by the power and presence of God.

Even though times of struggle and trial ensued, God has never removed His hands of grace and mercy from us. As CHC steps out of our winter season, we look forward to times of refreshing in His glory, which is our greatest delight!

// ONCE UPON A TIME IN 30 YEARS //

Once upon a time
As with many stories of old
We see the beginning of one man’s life
A journey waiting to be told

A man born to live
And then to die
But this Man was not the same
He came back to live
To life again
Now hope is in His name

And so His story lives
In so many of us today
Lives bought through blood and sacrifice
A terrible price to pay

Yet not in death do we remain
But faith, hope and love
There's so much more for us to gain
When we fix our eyes above

Because of Him, this house began
From 1 2 3 we grew
To many all across the lands
A revival sprang up anew

We danced in the spring
We leapt in the summer
Among the fields of gold
But autumn passed quickly
And winter set in
And suddenly
We were in the cold

Tossed and turned
Turmoil uncontained
Our hearts were ripped asunder
But through it all
We now can attest
His love remained our wonder

So we stand today
Having been through all
A little battle-weary
But though our hands have less
Our hearts still full
His grace has kept us steady

30 years have passed
The line is drawn
30 more, lie just ahead
What can we say
But “Glory, Glory!"
To He Who has raised us from the dead
