Sunday Services in December

8th December

11.00am & 6.30 pm 

Blue Christmas

Once again we take a pause in the Christmas preparations to acknowledge the difficulty the season can present for those lonely, in pain and experiencing loss. We each hope for peace and strength to bear those parts of Christmas that are hardest for us and call to mind those we miss most acutely at this time of year.

Rev Andy Phillips

Brass and Carols

Our annual Christmas carol service with the accompaniment of the fabulous Stannington Brass Band. The most atmospheric service of the year - not to be missed!

The Anatomy of a Snowflake

What does winter look like? At the turning point of the year we look for renewal in the fragility of the earth, our lives and our society.

Stop the World I Want to Get Off

As 2019 draws to a close we pause, briefly, to consider the bewildering and relentless pace of change of modern life and how to deal with it.

Sunday Services in January

5th January 11.00am & 6.30pm

Starting again, again

A new year is potentially a chance to start at least part of our lives again. How real is this chance and are we able to seize it?

19th January 11.00am & 6.30pm

An Unexamined Tradition... not worth continuing? Socrates said that "an unexamined life is not worth living" and American Unitarian said that "an unexamined faith is not worth having". We look at the role of tradition in our lives, our faith and our institutions.

Rev Andy Phillips

Health, Healing and Wholeness

Congregational Contributions are welcome in a service for Hospital Sunday, marked in Sheffield since the formation of the Sheffield Hospital Sunday fund in 1868.
