Preached at Celebration of Lay Ministry 2017 – Luke 6

My garden has a number of apple trees and this year an abundance of apples - both cooking and eating apples.  I can’t tell you how many apple crumbles and pies we must have eaten this year already.  Life can be tough sometimes you know, but someone has to rise to the challenge.  But those who know me well will also know that my knowledge of gardening - let alone trees - could be written on the back of a postage stamp.  However, while researching this sermon my attention was drawn to a number...

Bishop Pete's sermon from his service of installation

Service of Installation, Sheffield Cathedral, 23.09.17, 3.00pm 2 Corinthians 08.01-09: Grace, gratitude and generosity Let me begin, if I may, with some thanks.  Cathy and I are hugely grateful for the warmth of the welcome we’ve received since we moved into Bishopscroft in June.  We have very quickly been made to feel at home and among friends, here at the Cathedral and across the Diocese, here in this city and across the region.  I’ve been particularly grateful for the warmth of...

Lively and diverse Christian communities

The Diocese of Sheffield is made up of Church of England organisations located throughout South Yorkshire and the southern parts of the East Riding of Yorkshire. It comprises parishes, schools, chaplaincies, missional communities and other organisations all united by their common Christian faith.

It is an Anglican diocese that is made up of a diverse community of mission-focused people who are seeking to transform their lives, and the lives of others, by sharing the Christian faith.  Since the creation of the diocese in 1914, the shape of the villages, towns and cities may have changed but the people are still vibrant, energetic and passionate about serving our Lord Jesus Christ.

As a diocese we have been called to grow a sustainable network of Christ-like, lively and diverse Christian communities in every place which are effective in making disciples and in seeking to transform our society and God’s world.  Every day around the diocese, dedicated, creative and passionate people are working together in the mission of God.
