What led you to mission?

As soon as I got saved as a teenager I knew I had to share the gospel with other people. When I came to Cardiff I ended up at Highfields where I was encouraged, equipped and then released into mission. I have been a mission’s partner since 1999 and I am so thankful for this church.

Charles and Liz Chalmers and family

Serving with OMF International

We’ve been in OMF for over 25 years now. Most of that time was spent in the Southern Philippines doing church planting and nuturing work among the Manobo people. We were quite involved in setting up and running the S. Philippines indigenous peoples education program for Manobo children and young people. For the last 8 years or so we’ve been based in Bristol as OMF area representatives for Wales and West England. We also are registered foster carers in the Bristol area. Chalmers

Serving with Interserve


For the last 6.5 years I have been making contact with mainly Muslim families living around Highfields.  This has been done by running English classes for ladies on Mondays and Tuesday mornings.  At the end of each term the lessons are given over to a Christian presentation.  In 2017 a small group of these ladies started to meet weekly to look at the message of Bible. 

In 2016 English classes were started in Grangetown on Thursday and Friday mornings and this project is slowly building up.

Dave Fielder and family

Serving with Yorkshire Camps

Dave Fielder

Yorkshire Camps runs residential holidays for children aged 8-18 at our centre in the Yorkshire Dales. Our 3 aims are for children to; Enjoy an action-packed holiday, Explore the Christian message, and Enlarge their faith. We run camps during the holidays, weekends away for church groups, and school residentials. All these include time explaining the Bible as well as a range of games & activities. We also run a gap-year programme. My role is to speak or lead on camps and help oversee the gap team. My wife Gill works locally as a physio and also helps support the team. 


How have you seen God work in your ministry?

Yorkshire Camps has seen an amazing array of answered prayers since its inception just 4 years ago. God has been at work for us to provide our home at Netherside Hall. Now with building work near completion, and hosting camps most weeks we have the privilege of seeing God at work through us. It’s been a thrill to receive feedback like the following; the first is from a teenager, the second from a group leader after bringing their group of mostly unchurched kids; “Thank you for an amazing camp. I really wasn’t sure about coming because I’ve had a rough year in terms of faith and wasn’t sure if I even still believed. I have really enjoyed everything!!”.  “On the way home Isabel suddenly shouted down the minibus, "What I learned this week is that Jesus died for our sins because we (short pause) tell lies."”. Thank God that He is using us to help Children discover who he is and what he’s done, and to help teenagers remain firm in their faith. Ask God that he would continue to work in this way!
