Bruce Lloyd, Minister at the Sheffield Church of the Nazarene in Heeley, will retire at the end of this month, after 35 years of service.
Bruce, a married father-of-four, is a well-known figure in Heeley, where he is known for his commitment and for always going the extra mile to help people.
Sophie Peel-Yaes, administrator at the church, said: “Bruce will be greatly missed and we’re pleased that he will continue to live in Heeley after his retirement.
“The church was reopened with Bruce’s help in 1980 and, in the years since, has become a real focal point in the community with services, weddings, clubs, classes and fairs - all thanks to his hard work and dedication..”
Bruce’s retirement party will be held at Newfield School on Saturday September 26 from 6pm.
