Welcome to Hope City Church in Sheffield

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

Packed full of families, students, young professionals, empty nesters and everyone else – we aim to connect each and every person to the life changing message of Jesus Christ through the power of God’s community, His Church. Everyone is welcome.

We look forward to seeing you online every Sunday at 10:00am GMT, on a Tuesday for Tuesday Night Live at 7:30pm via our Facebook Page and we are hosting online Dinner Parties every Wednesday.

Whizz Kids

Our Whizz Kids aged 2 to 10 have their own church service every Sunday during the main service! With worship time, games and an engaging message about Jesus, all run by our amazing Whizz Kids Team – join the party!

Neon Youth

Our Neon Youth ministry is for all 11-17s. We have events on Fridays – Crew Nights, Socials and Stadium Nights – plus Ignite, for 11-13s that runs during the Sunday services. It’s a place to build healthy friendships, find out about Jesus and have fun every week!

Students and Young Adults

Our Student and YA Ministry is a huge part of all we do- with hangouts, socials and our Encounter Nights, we build family and friendships that will stick for life. We have Dinner Parties across the city, so make sure you get connected in. We also have So.cieties, which are our interest groups designed to get you plugged in.

Young Professionals

Our YP ministry is all about celebrating and empowering those of us in the workplace. We all have a calling, we all have gifts and talents and our vision is to do this together over brunch, our dinner parties, on a Sunday and beyond. Keep an eye out for our next YP Service. #thankGoditsmonday

Women | She Is

The vision for our women’s ministry spans across all generations; Daughters for our Youth, Sisters for our Students, YAs and YPs, She Is Mums, and We are Woman for our over 35s. And once a year we host our She Is Conference, which is our chance to come together as daughters, hear from incredible speakers and spend time with our God.


The men’s ministry of Hope City Sheffield kicked off with a bang a couple of years ago at The Heist men’s conference – our annual gathering for all the men of Hope City. With events happening throughout the year – we are being purposeful about building brotherhood and impacting our world for good.


We are a creative church, and we believe that there is a spark of creativity in each of us that’s put there by our creator God! If you have a skill or talent or you just want to try something new, jump on board!

Business Colab

For all professionals and entrepreneurs – we believe that God called each of us to a work place, and we each have gifts which equip us for our work. The Business Colab runs events through the year designed to grow you and provide networking opportunities.

Once a month on a Wednesday night at 7:30pm, we all congregate in our Press Coffee shop for a fresh juice and natter, then head to one of our several Growth Track Courses.
