We believe that we are called to encourage the growth of the Kingdom of God across the world, as well as locally. We do that in two ways. 1. Overseas Mission Partners and 2. Short term mission trips
1. Warfield's overseas Mission Partners
We have a strong emphasis on developing partnerships with overseas Mission Partners, whom we uphold through prayer, financial giving and visits, both of teams to partners and of partners to Warfield.
Each partner is particularly aligned with one of our congregations. We currently support the following mission partners:
Milan and Shusma Adhikari, Aanandit Church, Nepal (St Michael’s)
We have supported Milan and Shusma (and their three girls, Amishu, Nesia and Prajwalita) for many years, since before they started the Aanandit Church in 2002. Aanandit have planted various congregations in the Kathmandu area and are involved in various community projects, through their Charity Centre, microcredit projects and outreach into the community. Milan and Shusma are on the church leadership team and are also involved in various ministries nationally, with leadership training and women’s ministries.
Peter and Becky Clemison, Youth With A Mission, Cebu, Philippines (St Michael’s)
Peter and Becky are serving in Cebu in the Philippines. They are working with Cebu House of Prayer (a YWAM team) and are developing a new initiative 4Freedom to work with those who have been trafficked. Warfield Church has supported them for the last 5 years. Peter became a Christian through Warfield Church. They have a son Joshua and a daughter Hannah.

We have been supporting various projects in Bulgaria through Krasif Aid since 2002. Warfield Church has sent volunteer ministry teams to work with the vulnerable and poor people in Sliven. This is done through the Safe Houses, Men's Institutes, Orphanages and the Gipsy Villages. We are currently funding a food project providing a hot meal each day to some of the very poor people to run through the severe winter months. Discussions are taking place to make this a viable long-term project.
St Peter's Lifeline, Kenya (Eternity Bullbrook)
St Peter's Life-Line is a small grass roots charity, partnering with St Peter's primary school and community in Kajuki, Kenya. They are helping to lift a community out of poverty, through education, micro finance, empowering girls, feeding programmes, clean water, sanitation and the prevention of disease. We aim to bring hope through education
and a more secure future. Their core vision is to 'Embrace, Educate, Equip & Empower the next Generation
'. St Peter's School was established in 2006 by a young, dynamic priest, Fr Joe. The school is in Kajuki, situated near the foot of Mt Kenya, in the South Meru District. It is a harsh, semi-arid part of Kenya, and is home to some 40,000 people.

Pocket Money Fights Poverty
Pocket Money Fights Poverty was begun within Warfield church by a member of St. Peter’s congregation. It exists to take individuals and communities out of poverty. Using small boxes to collect loose change, it has raised thousands of pounds. The strongest partnership is with 'St Peter's Life-Line'. A number of children on the 'Transforming Lives Programme' are sponsored. The children are given an education, food and most importantly a hope for the future. With the discovery of over 100 physically disabled children in the community (hidden away due to the stigma of being disabled in Kenyan culture), the charity also now provide full time support and therapy to some.
