The St Peter's College Resource Centre is a lending library and is available to be used free of charge to everybody living within the Diocese of Sheffield. Full details of the centre can be found on the St Peter's College website.

It has over 2,000 members and over 10,000 items available to be borrowed, including a wide range of contemporary Christian literature for all ages. Other items available from the centre include CDs, puppets, parachutes, Godly Play boxes, posters, icons, garden games and display materials.

The centre hopes to provide a ‘full package’.  So for example, if you want to create a special service from scratch the centre can provide a talk/sermon, hymn books/CDs, drama scripts, prayer books, visual aids eg puppets, balloons, posters and display materials. If you are organising a church fete the centre has garden games, gazebos, display boards, badge makers, and playchutes.

The centre also had a good selection of Godly Play boxes and books, details of which can be found on the Goldy Play pages of the St Peter's College website.

As the Resources Centre is situated in the reception of Church House there should always be someone here to help you.  If you need something specific, phone first to make sure what you want is available. 

The centre is open during normal working hours, Monday-Friday, 9am - 5pm.  It also tours with a stall at major Diocesan events.

Stephanie Osman is the main contact for the centre and is available to answer any queries between 10am-1pm weekdays.  Get in touch with her at 01709 309105 or email
