A Sheffield parable (and an inspiring true story)

Lent begins tomorrow.  It’s the time of year when Christians give something up – usually food - or else take something on for the sake of others.  Let me tell you a true story for the beginning of Lent about kindness and practical help. Sohail Mumtaz is a leader of the Muslim Community Association in Sheffield.  Last year, during Ramadan, he challenged one of his friends, Lee Ward, to have a one day fast.  Lee fasted and the experience of going hungry for a day made him think of the...

Pushing ourselves to the limit

It was with great sadness that we learnt last week of the death of explorer Henry Worsley, who sadly died after collapsing with exhaustion just 30 miles short of completing a crossing of Antartica.  He was attempting to recreate the majority of Sir Ernest Shackleton’s unfinished journey to the South Pole and become the first adventurer to cross the continent unsupported.  I am sure that our thoughts and prayers go out to his family and friends – and all those who knew him personally.

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.
