Diocese prepares to celebrate centenary

The Anglican diocese of Sheffield is stepping up its preparations for next year’s centenary celebrations.

Members of the Sheffield Diocesan Synod will be given a progress report at St Mary’s, Handsworth, on Saturday.

Bishops, clergy and laity will hear the Bishop of Doncaster, Peter Burrows, outline the plans, which will coincide with the re-opening of Sheffield Cathedral.

Also on the agenda are finance and presentations about what churches can do about the environment.
