#Sheffield City Covenanted Partnership
On 11th October around 150 people gathered at St Andrew's Psalter Lane Church to celebrate the signing of the Sheffield City Covenanted Partnership in an Extended Area between the Methodist and Anglican Churches in the City of Sheffield.
On one level, the service was about a formal agreement, but really it is more about a relationship. In many ways for us in Sheffield it was the fruit of a relationship between two church leaders who shared a common vision of mission, unity and hope for the city. Sadly, neither were present — Bishop Stephen is now, of course, in Oxford and we remember with thanksgiving the life and work of Revd Vernon Marsh who died early this year only a short while after retiring as chair of Sheffield Methodist District.
