CHURCHES

Sheffield has many churches in and around the city centre where you can get involved. We strongly advise our members to be part of a church while they are in Sheffield, as we read in the Bible that we, as Christians, should be part of a church family. Churches offer teaching, support, and are a great opportunity to get to know other Christians in Sheffield who are not students, helping you to grow further in your Christian faith. 

Finding your church is an important part of coming to uni, so we run a Church Search throughout September and into October to help freshers find their church family in Sheffield.

Here is a list of some of the churches in Sheffield which some of our members attend, please explore their websites to find out more! If you have any questions about churches, please get in touch with us or one of the following churches.

SHEFFIELD VINEYARD CHURCH

WHAT

We want our city to be full of people who are full of life. God has called us to establish a growing, vibrant, biblically-based, regional Vineyard church rooted in Sheffield, which will, in the power of the Holy Spirit, worship God and communicate the gospel of Jesus in creative and relevant ways. We will make, train and equip disciples to be effective in extending God’s kingdom, and we will show generosity and kindness, especially towards the least, the lonely and the lost. We love students. We’re constantly reminded that students are some of the most dedicated, fun, and compassionate followers of Jesus. Our students get involved in various ways from joining in our peaks and pub walks to leading worship, Lifegroups and playing active parts in the running of the church. Alex and Karen (Church Leaders) have been students for far too long and Alex currently lectures part time at University. Our Sunday Services are held in the heart of Endcliffe primarily because we want to be accessible to students. You’re welcome to come along to everything we do. We are part of vineyard churches UK and you can find what we believe here
