Focus Service: Sheffield Church

Focus Service: Sheffield Church is a church designed exclusively for people with learning disabilities and is based around principles of cognitive (i.e. thinking and comprehension) developmental theory. This approach has also proved helpful for people with general comprehension difficulties.

The church is officially recognised as a Christian inter-denominational partnership between Meadowhead Christian Fellowship, The Church of England and the Baptist Church through a Bishop’s Mission Order (BMO).  The ministry is also supported by St. Paul’s (Church of England) Church and Centre where we meet on Sunday evenings every two weeks.  Visit Focus Service to find out more about it.
