Who does St Peters serve?
St Peter’s serves 4 groups within the church…
St Peter’s College is the Sheffield Diocesan learning community for mission and ministry and will support the diocesan vision of growing and strengthen a culture of discipleship in our churches across the Diocese. It will do this by equipping lay and ordained people to grow the church and by offering training and support in discipleship, in collaboration with the Parish Support Team, to complement what your local church is already doing.
We aim to provide high quality training that is both relevant and appropriate as we seek to grow a mixed economy church in our Diocese.
St Peter’s is not a what but a who…
...it’s a community of all those in ministry in the Diocese and those who want to grow in their faith.
St Peter’s is not something you graduate from...
...you become and remain part of St Peter’s by virtue of being in ministry in the Diocese (but you must activate your membership!)
St Peter’s is not just about short-
...the focus is on life-
...is to encourage and affirm the flourishing of lay and ordained people of God.
... is that of a learning community that discerns, develops and forms the gifts that people of God bring to the mission and ministry of the church.
