Sheffield Action for Ministry Equality is a collective of various people within the Diocese of Sheffield who are using this space to seek to improve the quality of conversation about esteeming the ministry of all, for Goole, Doncaster, Rotherham, Barnsley, Dinnington, Sheffield and their surrounding areas.

Sheffield Action for Ministry Equality made its focus from 9 March to 17 March on Prayer.

It’s purpose so far has been to consider how those in the Church of England Diocese of Sheffield can make sense of equality for all in ministry. We have a News blog with daily updates and a whole Opinion section with items from people in the Diocese of Sheffield including from: Janet Morley, Julie Upton, Sue Hammersley, Sioned-Mair Richards, Ian Owers, Nick Jowett, Jeremy Clines and Ali Dorey plus a guest piece from Joanna Collicutt.

We also offer suggestions for Action.
