We are located just outside Sheffield in a picturesque valley.  It is a peaceful place, well suited to exploring the wonders of God's creation.  A small congregation with a mix of ages,  we are evangelical in a traditional way, but are open to change and God's leading.  At the present time we are seeking guidance about different ways of presenting the gospel for the 21st century (and beyond!).  If you feel led to contribute to these developments, please get in touch.


Church Twinning.
We have been twinned with a small church in north India, in a small place called Asoha.  More details are to be found on the "Church Twinning" page.
History of the church.
The church dates back to 1872 when a Mr J.A. Grange of Mayfield House converted part of one of his barns into a preaching house.  Worshippers grew in numbers to 68, with a Sunday school of about 100 scholars.  After Mr Grange's death, the new owners required the barn and in 1896 the present chapel opened, the cost was in the region of £550.
Many different activities have taken place over the years, some still continue.  The triptych based on the Mayfield Valley was painted for the centenary celebrations in 1996.  The original building was extended by the addition of a schoolroom at the rear, in the early 1990s.  This makes the premises more flexible for activities in addition to Sunday worship.

A prayer:
Hello God, I have never prayed and I don't know how to start so this is .........................(say your name).  Take me as I am, with all that I am.  Come into my life and help me start afresh with you.  Amen.

If you have said this prayer and would like to find a fellow friend in faith that can take the next step with you, please contact the pastors, Susannah or Jonathan (see above for email address).

Jesus Said:
"For everyone who makes himself great will be humbled; and everyone who humbles himself will be made great."
Luke Chapter 14: verse 11.  Good News version.
