We are a church who value family, Spirit and Heart. We pursue God’s presence through expressive worship, clear talks and prayer.
Dennis and Charmian live and work in Lima, Peru, leading a local church which has missions into areas of extreme poverty in Lima, church-planting in the Amazon Rainforest and outreach to the high Andes. Centro de Fuego church is multicultural and has a vision for revival – personal, national and to the nations. Charmian is an English teacher at one of Lima’s most prestigious schools, teaching many of Peru’s future leaders.
Charmian is Mel’s sister who met Dennis a Peruvian at bible school in Nottingham. We have supported them financially since 2008. This was before Paul and Mel were part of Waterbrook.
Dennis and Charmian have four kids. Elliot and Emily are at university in the UK and Francesca and Louie go to a small Christian school in Lima.
They visit the UK when they can and when they do they visit Waterbrook.
Dennis and Charmian visited Waterbrook several times in the second half of 2022 when they had a 6 month sabbatical in Bristol.
Their ministry involves working amongst the poor and the people who live in the mountains and forests in fact anywhere they feel the call of God to support. They train people to do outreach in the mountains, reaching people who may not have heard the gospel.
Like us they do not own their own building but have been meeting in a hotel on Sundays and in homes in the week time.
They both sing and teach and their children are also involved in the ministry.
