Overview
More
The Cathedral is Sheffield's oldest building, the ancient heart of a great city, where God has been worshipped for over a thousand years. It has watched Sheffield grow and develop over the centuries, and it tells a story - of great women and men, of wars, of industry and commerce, and of the people who have lived in Sheffield. Here people have prayed, made music, offered hospitality and cared for the poor, as they do still today. The building reflects its many uses, with the traditional worship spaces including the grand high altar and the quiet crypt chapel, but also the busy conference centre, and the Archer Project area where the homeless and vulnerable find what they need Here every visitor will find something to interest them. You can book a special visit, or just call in and explore. You may find that a service is happening, in which case you can join in or not as you choose. Everyone is invited - Sheffield Cathedral is a place for all people. We are open every day of the year.

Called in to the Cathedral and lit a candle. Even though there were people around and the organist was practicing in the background it still felt peaceful. The staff in the gift shop were friendly too.

This is one of the nicest cathedrals in England I visited. Great information about the cathedral, but also modern, as it contains a coffee bar (great to be able to have a cup in church!). Nice stained-glass windows as well.

I visited the cathedral for the first time in December, when it was all decorated for Christmas, and I have to say that I was not in the least disappointed! Despite being an atheist, churches and cathedrals have always been some of my favourite buildings,...More
