Cathedral and church at the heart of the city? From continuity to change – two explorations.
Sheffield’s central churches contrast with each other and complement each other in appearance and mission. Two are cathedrals. Both have recently been refurbished and reordered. They merit exploration, and here are two opportunities to explore them in depth.
Monday 20th October 2014, 7.30pm, Eccelsall Parish Church, Eccelsall Road South, Sheffield.
Presenters include Pete Bradley (Dean of Sheffield), Peter Fawcett (Chairman, Fabric Advisory Committee) and Michael Rawson (Sub-Dean, Wakefield Cathedral). Themes include: The Cathedral – thanks God? – that never was”, “A really modern Cathedral?” and “Rediscovering an Architectural Gem”. Tickets costs £10 and proceeds will be shared between The Friends of Sheffield Cathedral and the Yorkshire Historic Churches Trust. Refreshments will be available from 7pm.
Saturday 25th October 2014, 10am, Norfolk Room, Central United Reformed Church, Sheffield.
Coffee will be followed by a prompt start at 10.45am for a tour of each of the two cathedrals, finishing at 12.30. Tickets cost £5 and proceeds will be shared between The Friends of Sheffield Cathedral and the Yorkshire Historic Churches Trust.
