Who are we?
M eadowhead Christian Fellowship is a Christian church made up of people from all walks of life, all ages and many different backgrounds and cultures — but with one thing in common. We want to experience the love of God in our own lives and are committed to living the Christian life in a real and practical way. More than that, we are also committed to sharing the love of God with others, both locally and further afield.
Early in 2004, we moved into Unit 3, a former SPAR shop in the Jordanthorpe shopping precinct. Over several months, we converted it for use by the church and the communities of Jordanthorpe and Batemoor. Our hope for this building was that it would provide a venue for local people of all ages, a place where they can find help in practical as well as spiritual ways. In 2016, we took out a lease on Unit 2 to expand the facilities available to support different activities. We are also moving ahead with plans for a two storey extension on the land at the rear of Unit 3 to provide facilities for the increasing range of community-focussed activities based at MCF.
MCF is a church in the mainstream of Christian belief and is a member of the Evangelical Alliance, which represents about 1 million Christians in the UK.
We are also actively involved in partnership with other churches in Sheffield and in many parts of the world, particularly India, Malawi, the Philippines and Zambia.
Our vision for the coming year comes from Isaiah 54:2:
"Enlarge the place of your tent, stretch your tent curtains wide, do not hold back; lengthen your cords, strengthen your stakes."
For us, this is about strengthening the local church which will also enable us to continue to reach out and serve others, whether in other parts of this country or across the world. Our intention is to not hold back - in our church, in our community, in our city, our country and our world.
