Hey there!

I'm not catholic but I'm a Christian and I'll probably be going to the Christian Union when I get there - depends on if they are normal people or not! I don't know about catholic churches, but there is a good anglican church in sheffield.

anyways, might see you at some events!

I don't know which one I want to go to - the two main student churches are fulwood which is more conservative anglican but good student scene, or St Tom's which i think is the vineyard, or it might be new frontiers, whatever it is I know it's charismatic. I'll go to both a couple of times and see which one I like the look and feel. I have a friend running Ranmoor CU and she said that the barbeque on wed or thurs (can't remember) should be good so i'm gonna try to make it there. What halls are you in? are you planning to go to hall cu too?

Clario, the chaplaincy that i was talking about is the catholic chaplaincy of the Uni of Sheffield and it's mainly attended by students or ex-students. i can assure u that is youth-friendly. there are also a couple of others catholic churches in sheffield (the main ones are the St Mary cathedral and St Vincent church) but most of the students go to mass to the chaplaincy, not only because it's a youth-friendly place but also because there are many activities organised there apart from the mass. hope to see u there. when u will come to sheffield?

Sorry i spelt the name wrongly: it's the cathedral church of St Marie. it's in norfolk street very near to the town hall. then there is the other anglican cathedral (very nice u should also visit it) in church street i think; there is a supertram stop in front of it

for the other christian ppl u can also have a look to the other kind of chaplaincy of the uni of sheffield. there is the chaplaincy services and u can can find more information on the web:
http://www.shef.ac.uk/ssd/chaplains/christian
of course there are other churches apart from chaplaincy but as i told before the chaplaincy is a youth-friendly place because it has been built for students! :p:

Hey there - So I won't be the only Christian in the whole of sheffield then? excellent!

I'm doing psychology and staying in Stephenson. What kind of church do you like? I've heard good and bad things about both the main churches, so I'll see what I think when I get there.

I don't think I'll go to the chaplaincy - mainly because I want a little escape out of student life, I can feel like a normal member of society in church where not everyone is a student! Plus Christians make great roast dinners and just love to be hospitable, use and abuse the command to feed the poor that's what I say! no, seriously, it'll be good to get into the real community of sheffield rather than just the student scene.

I would have thought so - There will definately be some kind of society for muslims and I would have thought Jews too. There are probably chaplaincy services or the equivelent for most major religions.

But it's not the university that is catering for the Christian community - it's societies that have set themselves up. In fact from what I've heard the uni is quite against Christian societies because they don't cater for all religions (which seems to be a rather ridiculous point to me, but that's the post modernistic society for you...)

Do you have a faith? I can try and find out if there is a society or something for you.

i go to a pentecostal evangelical church, which I know not everyone agrees with, but I would like to go to a pentcostal church in sheffield. Im going to try out a few and see where i feel most spiritually "at home" so to speak. I agree with what you say about wanting to be part of a church and not just classed as a "student".

What sort of church do you go to at home?

I'm a church "ho" as you might call it. I grew up in a semi - charismatic baptist church in london, then moved to a slightly more conservative anglican (good lively youth group though) and since then I've been to a conservative anglican with excellent bible teaching but lacking in "joy" I felt. So I'm back at the baptist church! Have you heard of YWAM aka youth with a mission? I've just finished doing a gap year with them so I'm leaning more toward the charismatic/pentecostal church. I hear St. Tom's is very lively and big so I'll check it out. As long as they don't comprimise the teaching for the worship I'll be ok. I need a good balance! There seems to be a good christian scene in Sheffield though so that's good to know.
