Bishop of Sheffield


On Thursday of this week, I will be taking part in two profound symbolic actions in the Cathedral which have humility at their very heart.   The first is the Royal Maundy.  Her Majesty the Queen will distribute gifts to eighty-nine men and eighty-nine women, honoured for their service to church and community.  The tradition goes back hundreds of years and looks back to the moment at the last supper when Jesus knelt and washed the feet of his disciples.  It was at that moment when Jesus...

Blessing of the Oils - Chrism Service at Sheffield Cathedral 2015

Can I add my welcome to that of Bishop Steven and say what a privilege it is to be sharing once again in this service with you.  Thank you for our solidarity in Christ and each other.  This is a solemn time, but also an occasion of great joy as deacons, priests and bishops renew their commitment to serve made at our ordinations.  And the whole people of God, licensed ministers or not, recommit themselves to the service of God as his disciples.  The Chrism Eucharist is very much about...

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.
