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.
