Serving Sheffield Since 2015
We love Jesus and we love our city, Sheffield. The Well launched in September 2015 and is led by Baptist minister Nick and his wife Marjorie Allan. Our heart is to build relationship with you - whatever your situation in life.
Every Sunday we gather at The Well, offer thanks and praise to God in the form of music and singing and listen to a short talk together. Here's what to expect:
You’ll be greeted by the ’welcome team’ on the door, who will be wearing a ‘Well’ T-shirt. These guys aren’t bouncers, just volunteers who are there to say "HI" and welcome people.
TIME FOR A BREW?
Our cafe is open 30 minutes before the service so you can grab yourself a free drink and snack and have a chat.
The Sunday gatherings will start with a greeting and possibly some notices about things that are happening at the Well in the coming weeks (there’s lots you can get involved in).
PRAISE & WORSHIP
We usually enter a time of music and singing, which is our way of giving thanks to God. You can do what ever feels right for you in this time. You can stand and singalong, sit and watch, lie down, kneel, or dance. The music will be led by a ‘worship leader’ who will help to guide everyone. This time of praise is normally 20-30 minutes in length.
At about 10.40 the children can go to tailor-made groups suitable to their ages: 4-7; 8-10; 11-14. There’s always toddler toys in a dedicated space where parents can feel free to be.
TALK AND DISCUSS
Following a time of worship we’ll listen to a talk. This will be based upon Biblical scripture and will often include insights and interpretation from the person who’s bringing the talk. This is usually about 30 minutes in length.
Sometimes we’ll have more music or a time of response to the talk. You can ask to receive prayer in this time if you wish. This simply means telling someone what you’d like God to help you with and they'll speak to God with you.
If you’ve not done so already it would then be a great time to introduce yourself to someone so we can connect with you and be available to invite you to be involved in any other aspects of activities at The Well.
