Welcome to the Sheffield District Website

Methodism in this area has a strong local presence, a faithful tradition of worship and a growing sense of commitment to the wider community. Combined with strong local loyalties there is an awareness of the need for change, which has resulted in a new sense of local ministry and neighbourhood action in several places. We hope you can find what you are looking for.
