Gospel Fellowship at St Abdias of Susa, Sheffield

The Free Church of England’s congregation in Sheffield, dedicated to St Abdias of Susa, gave a warm welcome to Revd Brett Murphy, the Northern Diocese’s newest presbyter, and to Revd Tony and Mrs Cherie Welty of the Reformed Episcopal Church in North America on 9th July.

The Weltys and Brett accompanied Bishop John on his monthly visit to the congregation. They were warmly welcomed by our brothers and sisters in Christ.

During Holy Communion (conducted in English and Farsi) Tony and Brett introduced themselves and spoke of the call of God in their lives.

After the service there was an outdoor meal of Iranian food, accompanied by lively conversation and fellowship.


God cannot give us a happiness and peace apart from Himself, because it is not there. There is no such thing.

C. S. Lewis

Press forward. Do not stop, do not linger in your journey, but strive for the mark set before you. Fight the good fight of faith, and God will give you spiritual mercies.

George Whitefield

It is also our apostolic mission to enable all our people to develop into effective ambassadors of Christ in the Church and in the world.

Bishop John Fenwick

Being a Christian is more than just an instantaneous conversion – it is a daily process whereby you grow to be more and more like Christ.
