We are just round the corner from the Crosspool shops, and here to welcome all who come through our doors, whether for a church service, for playgroup, a keep fit class or one of the many other activities that take place in our building.
As a community we endeavour to:
- be an inclusive church which celebrates human diversity and welcomes all.
- create a space where people can grow in their faith, can question and discover the sacred in life through openness, struggle, laughter, prayer and worship.
- support one another through mutual care and hospitality.
- be alert to the needs of our local community and the wider world, having a commitment to be in solidarity with those who are marginalised and isolated.
- celebrate life in all its fullness and cherish creation.
We don’t manage it all the time, so when we stumble and fall, we pick ourselves up, dust ourselves off, and try again.

IN SOMEONE ELSE’S SHOES
A PLAY ABOUT THE AUTISTIC SPECTRUM AND US.
Monday 25th June 2018, 7.30pm at the Church of St Columba, Crosspool
1 in 100 people in the UK are diagnosed as being on the Autistic Spectrum. That’s 6000 people in Sheffield. Let’s suppose they each have 5 close family members – that’s at least 30,000 people in Sheffield who live with, or side-by-side with, this condition.
So – What is it? How does it affect those on the Spectrum? And what questions does it ask of so-called ‘normal’ people – whatever that means?!
‘IN SOMEONE ELSE’S SHOES’ is an entertaining, thought-provoking play devised by Spectrum Theatre, Sheffield, a theatre group made up of some who are on the Spectrum and some who aren’t. It is suitable for anyone of secondary school age and older.
To reserve seats: Phone 267 0006 (St Columba’s) or email either of the following
Tickets are free, with a bucket collection on the evening
