Church of England Diocese of Sheffield Skelbrooke

About Us

You are most welcome to be part of our Church Family 

Our church building is a Victorian  stone rebuild after a fire destroyed most of the Mediaeval building in 1872. There are still some mediaeval aspects of the church still visible. The lady chapel is a particularly interesting part.

We are a friendly, welcoming group, who take great time and effort to make the message of Jesus interesting, understandable, and relevant to everyday living.

Our services tend to be short, lasting between 30 and 60 minutes long, as we place just as much importance to talking together and sharing one another's journeys, joys and concerns afterwards. This, we believe, helps us to support one another, and lend a helping hand, when asked for.

Sadly at this moment in time due to the Coronavirus, there are no Church Services. Things may change. Please look at our Services and Events Section for details.

Visits to the churchyard however are permitted, to sit or to tend graves of loved ones, provided that you are with one other person only at a time and keep a safe distance apart from others in the Churchyard.

We are operating a streamed virtual Service every Sunday from Adwick Rectory at 10.30 a.m.. Details of how to access this on Zoom, can be obtained from our Rector The Rev Ann Walton on 01302 723224, as you need a passcode to view. 

She also does a weekly newsletter with readings, poems and prayers to accompany this. Again if you wish to be included, please contact her with your e-mail details at [email protected]
