Tapton Hill Congregational Church
An independent church founded in 1853 - A member of the Congregational Federation  

We are pleased to confirm we have services in line with Government guidance on Wednesday evenings and every 2nd & 4th Sunday in the

Message from our Minister Rev Suzanne Nockels

Harvest Festival will be held on Sunday September 26th at 2.45pm.

Our Harvest offering 
While I have been working at SCH it has come to the chaplains' attention that some parents are struggling to afford food. SCH gives the children meals but not the parents and the supermarket nearby is expensive. If they are staying on-site overnight this can add to their problems. After a few days there is a 'family fund' parents can apply to but it is not immediately available. We can also contact the S6 Foodbank if need be. 

We'd like to create a small Chaplain's pantry.  We are looking for food that can be made using a kettle or microwave, is a 'whole meal' in itself, has a long shelf life and does not need to be refrigerated. 

Pot Noodles
Instant Noodles
Tins of Soup (preferably with ring-pull tops)
Tins of Stew (preferably with ring-pull tops)
Pasta N' Sauce
Baked Beans (preferably with ring-pull tops)
Tinned Curry or Chicken Supreme (preferably with ring-pull tops)
Fray Bentos Meaty Puds
Cake In A Mug
Tinned Rice Pudding (preferably with ring-pull tops)
Mr Kipling Microwave Sponge Puddings or equivalent. 
tin openers

We will collect on 22nd September and think about Harvest on Wednesday 22nd September as well, but our Festival Service will be on Sunday 26th. 

The Lead Chaplain at the Hospital Rev Kathy Green will be with us on Wednesday September 29th and she'll take your gifts to the hospital where they will be greatly appreciated. 

Many, many thanks. 

All God's blessings

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
