We are a church with a heart for the people of Sheffield, Rotherham, Doncaster, Chesterfield and the regions of South Yorkshire and North Derbyshire.

Sheffield is the first and largest location of Hope City Church with an aim to connect each and every person to the life changing message of Jesus Christ through the power of God’s community, His Church.

Dinner Parties

Our Dinner Parties are fortnightly on Wednesday night at 7:30pm and not just for Sheffield but for the whole region of South Yorkshire and North Derbyshire. They are for all ages and for whatever life group you represent from late singles and young families to empty nesters as well as youth. Everyone’s included.

Growth Track

Once a month on a Wednesday night at 7:30pm, we all congregate in the Auditorium for a fresh juice and natter, then head for one of our eight Growth Track Courses.

Dream Teams

Dream Teams are exactly what they say on the tin – teams that help the dream of Hope City becoming a fast growing church full of people, connecting to both God and each other.

Let's Go Party

We have freed up one Wednesday each month* to give you a chance to get out and party with your neighbours, friends, workmates, college mates and anyone else who could do with your friendship and you theirs!

*except for the Young Adults who’ll be having their monthly YA Wednesdays


Listen to the latest messages from Pastor Dave Gilpin and team, preached live at Hope City Sheffield. We hope that this resource will equip and inspire you in your walk with God.
