Christmas Offering

How to give online to the two charities Highfields is supporting this Christmas

The offerings taken at our Carol Services and on Christmas Day will be shared between two charities:

Christians Against Poverty (CAP) are on a mission to release thousands of families from grinding poverty through award winning debt counselling and community groups. By equipping and empowering local churches to reach out on their doorsteps, we're bringing hope to tens of thousands of people every year.  We will be donating to the work of CAP in South Wales.

Helping Hands (Athens Refugee Ministry)Helping Hands Athens Refugee Ministry

Helping Hands is a Greek Humanitarian non-profit organisation working with refugees in Athens and motivated by the Biblical call "When an alien lives with you in your land, do not mistreat him. The alien living with you must be treated as one of your native born. Love him as yourself...."

Not Just Another Christmas

Bell had entranced audiences in concert halls all over the world. People paid hundreds of dollars to watch him play on his $3.5 million Stradivarius violin. He’s a virtuoso in his field and a total genius.

Mei Lin

Mei LinAs a teenager, I came to realise that I was not good and that if there was a God, he wouldn't be pleased with me.

But was there a God?

I tried to be a good person, but failed miserably. I learned about different faiths, looking for answers.

I asked people their views about God. In one such conversation I learned that Jesus died on the cross because, although he is completely good he took the punishment for all the wrong things we have done. I also learned that if I asked him he would forgive me and change my life. When I heard that message, I realised he was the answer I had been looking for.

I pray that you will experience his presence, love and forgiveness this Christmas and always.


MatthewGrowing up in Pakistan, the thought of living without a faith was impossible to imagine. On moving to the UK for university, my love for the new luxuries available meant that I no longer saw a need for faith in my life. However, God hadn't given up on me.

The almost weekly reminder at church that Christianity is not a religion but a relationship with God helped me to see my faith in a new light. I came to understand that this relationship isn't just an abstract concept - it is something that can be enjoyed. When I realised what was truly offered by God, my faith no longer felt a burden to bear but a joy to behold. I discovered that God isn't a distant being, but a loving Father.
