Bishop’s tour of his diocese

Have your say

GROWTH is top of the agenda for churches in the diocese of Sheffield.

The Bishop of Sheffield Dr Steven Croft will be making a three-month tour of his diocese to discuss church growth with parishioners.

The ‘road show’ of Dr Croft will start on Tuesday, September 6, at St Leonard’s Church in Wortley, part of the Tankersley deanery.

A booklet will be distributed at the events calling for every church member to play their individual part in the Diocesan Strategy for Growth.

Dr Croft will visit 12 deaneries in total, ending with All Saints Church in Ecclesall on Wednesday, November 23.

Along the way, he will visit deaneries including Doncaster, with an evening at Doncaster Knights Rugby Club on Thursday, September 15, and Snaith and Hatfield on Monday, October 31.
