Message from our Minister Rev Suzanne Nockels

Dear All, 

My sermons and services are posted on line each week and are available on 
Tapton church blog. 

Bible Studies on Skype are now held alternate Tuesday afternoons at 3pm. (check church diary)

From Friday 8th January please join me for coffee and a chat by the 'zoom' communications platform.  There is no agenda other than keeping connected. It will be the same link each time. You do not need to have Zoom on your computer, phone or tablet it should still work. Hopefully see you there. 

Please don't be overly anxious. As a Church we have learnt lots of ways to be 
supportive and stay connected over this time. While I will be ringing you, you can
always ring me on 0114 2325790. 

All God's blessings

Suzanne x

Message from the Church Secretary Darryl Lomas

Dear Friends

I thought a quick recap of what is happening at Tapton was called for.

Currently we are opening for worship on a Wednesday evening and every second and fourth Sunday afternoons in line with Government Guidance. 

Take care and stay safe.


Sermons from our services are recorded and are shown on our 

church blog.

As we have been unable to sing in church we have been joining together in using 
the sign language for our final Blessing. We are now very pleased to have Natasha 
one of our congregation teaching us the Lord's Prayer in British Sign Language.

If you wish to learn it yourself please see https://youtu.be/ZWEx4TXmvm4 

Bible studies are shown on the church blog
Who are we?

As a Congregational Church we are independently run by the members through our Church Meetings, where Spirit led we can all have a say in how we feel is the best way to worship 
our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. 

(see Church Diary page or Tapton facebook page for details)

Although independent we belong to the Congregational Federation and are part of Churches Together in Hallam who we occasionally join for ecumenical fellowship 

We are pleased to also offer a home to the Greek Orthodox Community Church in Sheffield.

To get a flavour of what we have been doing please read the reports of our Church Secretary and Minister from the Annual General Meeting on the 'About us' web page.

Congratulations Suzanne

We are pleased our own Rev Suzanne Nockels will become the next National 
President of the Congregational Federation. 
This was due to occur at our National Assembly in May this year but has now
been postponed until 2021. Presidential duties will be shared between Rev Dr 
Janet Wootton as Immediate Past President and Suzanne as President Elect.

Children and Young People

Tapton has a Safe from Harm policy and is inspected regularly. To find out more about the various activities please go to our Junior Church page

Memorial for victims of conflict

The memorial should have been dedicated on 11th April but this has been 
postponed until the end of the coronavirus crisis.

The bench has been restored and is again available to sit and reflect on beside 
the memorial.

Community Memory Tree

You may see a giant wooden Christmas tree in the garden soon. This is our
Community memory tree. From December 1st you are invited to hang a decoration
on it to remember a loved one, something you are thankful for this year, or a place/situation you want to be mindful of. Obviously nothing expensive and sadly, you'll not be able to
get it back. Some ideas might include;
- a pine cone/holly to remember this year's walks
- a star to remember someone who has been a star to you.
- a blue bauble with NHS on it. 
- a decoration in your loved one's favourite colour. 

So get thinking! 

Thank you to Graham, Darryl and Andrea for this. It is amazing.
