Faith in the city (places of worship)

The city of Sheffield is blessed with many places of worship. Students and staff of the University make a great contribution to the richness and diversity of the life of the city, and one of the ways in which they do that is by getting involved with a local church, mosque, synagogue or temple.

Wherever you are on the journey of faith and whatever your religious commitment, we hope that you will find a place where you can feel at home.

Remember that, while it is really valuable to have a place of worship to call 'home' while you are in Sheffield, there are some religious movements that promise solutions to life's difficulties but can land you with more problems than you started with!

If you're concerned about a worshipping community or a religious group, especially if you feel you or a friend are being harassed or placed under undue pressure, please come and talk to a chaplain, who can help you with your concerns.
