St Mark’s Church, Broomhill, is distinctive both for its outstanding modern architecture and for its thoughtful, liberal approach to questions of faith.
It was founded in 1859 as an Iron Church to serve the expanding Sheffield suburb of Broomhill. In 1871, this was replaced by a fine stone neo-Gothic building designed by W H Crossland. St Mark’s became a large, active and well known church.
The distinguished architect, George Pace, designed a new St Mark’s which was consecrated in September 1963. Since then, the church has progressed in many ways, including improvements to the building, strengthened links with the local community through the Broomhill Festival and the creation of the St Mark’s Centre for Radical Christianity in 2003. When St Silas, Broomhall, closed in 2000, much of Broomhall was added to St Mark’s parish.
We aim to be an open and welcoming community of people. We resist the labels which try to define us and appreciate that people have very different experiences of faith. Whether you are a student new to Sheffield, exploring faith, struggling to keep hold of it, or would just like some companionship on your journey of faith, come and join us!

Broomhill Library at Oriel House has served the people of Broomhill, Crookes, Crosspool, Fulwood, Lodge Moor, Nether Green and Ranmoor for some 60 years. Friends of the library and volunteers came forward in 2014 and have kept the library open. Over 60 volunteers now give their time to support and develop the library for the benefit of the local community in this part of Sheffield. Alongside staffing the library, volunteers have improved the grounds and are restoring the heritage Percy Cane garden at the rear. Our vision is for a thriving community centre in a restored and renovated Oriel House in the heart of Broomhill.
Muslim Welfare House of Sheffield (MWHS) is a Masjid and a Community Centre. It aims to serve the needs of Muslim and indigenous community of Sheffield.
MWHS believes in widening participation seeking strong community engagement with the adherents of all faiths. Therefore, in addition to providing prayer and educational space for the Muslim community, it conducts various educational programs for the communities, which are generally open for public.
Established, in 1973, as a student organization, to serve the needs of oversea students in Britain, the institution grew significantly, both in size and in its remit. As a registered charity, MHWS works closely with other faith organizations in order to promote community cohesion and better understanding of faith amongst communities.
At MWHS five daily prayers are offered in congregation as well as congregational prayer on Friday. Friday sermon is typically delivered in English as well as Arabic. Occasionally Friday sermon is delivered in Arabic and a translation is presented in English. On average once in a month a prominent speaker is invited to delivery the Friday sermon.
