Our History

hero history
Sheffield Community Church was started by a handful of believers from all walks of life in 2004 in Sheffield who were passionate and desiring to see a multi-ethnic local city church captured by God’s vision for reaching people with the good news. From the onset, SCC was related to Salt & Light Ministries International, through its links with Faith Ministries Zimbabwe. SCC is historically and relationally linked to Faith Ministries Zimbabwe because that is where it was planted from when people moved into the diaspora.

Salt & Light is an International family of leaders and churches, joined together by good relationships, shared values and common purpose. SCC is a part of Faith Ministries UK which was started as a result of diasporic missional work of Africans in the UK. The main mission of Faith Ministries UK Churches is to plant churches that are vibrant, multiethnic, and biblically relevant to their communities.
Sheffield Community Church has met in several venues within Sheffield in its formative years but in September 2015, Faith Ministries UK Churches (FMUK) officially purchased the building. The building is currently the official home of Sheffield Community Church and the head office of FMUK. We also use it for conferencing and serving the local community. The SCC community continues to grow and prevail as a healthy church that is committed to ‘reaching people and turning them into fully devoted followers of Christ.’ That is our main thing!
