Faith Stories: Overcoming the doubts

Looking forward to a new year...

Aristotle is supposed to have said “The more you know, the more you know you don't know.”  As we reflect on the past twelve months many will do so with joy, some with sadness and others with disappointment and regret.  At the beginning of 2016 none could have known what would impact on us personally, nationally or globally.  Few of us would have predicted ‘Brexit’ for example.  We may have anticipated the continuation of war and terrorism and done so with a great sadness in our hearts,...

What we need is more love and less paperwork - Renewal and Reform

By freeing-up clergy from administration, more time can be given to growing the Church and serving local communities, argues Graham Millar, from the Mission Partnership Development Worker Project in Sheffield Diocese.

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.

On this website you can find resources and information relevant to all aspects of Christian life, churches and parishes, schools and wider ministry. If you can't find what you are looking for, contact Church House, our administration centre, on 01709 309100.
