  • 5th September 2017 | DAC Tour 2017

    Following last year’s successful tour of reordered churches, the DAC is arranging another event where themes will focus on heritage, community use, and attracting visitors. Four Nottinghamshire churches will be visited each with its own distinct story and community. They attract visitors and volunteers from the parish and farther afield. By carefully exploring the history of their church, location and people each has devised ways of making their building more accessible, useable, approachable and sustainable. Each will offer you plenty to consider when looking at how your church might use heritage to engage with new audiences and friends. Read more

Chrism Eucharist 2017

As we are aware the diocese has been on a journey and I don’t intend to rehash again the things I said in my pastoral letter and Presidential Address to Synod.  As I’ve said before, this is a day when we come together as lay and ordained colleagues from across the diocese.  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...

Introduction to the Bishops' Advisor for Disability and Inclusion Issues

Last August (2016) I was appointed as the Bishops' Advisor for Disability and Inclusion Issues.  Much has happened (personally and within the Diocese) since then, and it is only now that I am able to start working on this role.  So, a little about me, a little about the role, and a little about how we work together. I am Revd Katie Tupling, Vicar of Dore and Priest-in-Charge of Totley.  I was ordained in Derby Cathedral 2003, and came to Sheffield in 2013.  My husband Chris is a Primary...

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.
