Sheffield Cathedral

Sheffield Cathedral is the oldest building in Sheffield still in daily use. Formerly the Parish Church of Sheffield, it was granted Cathedral status in 1914 – however the history of Christianity on this site goes back over 1000 years.

Like many churches, Sheffield Cathedral is a building which has many stories to tell. It tells the story of the Christian faith in Sheffield through the centuries of worship, prayers and remembrance which have taken place within its walls and continue today in an unbroken Christian tradition.

It also tells the story of the City of Sheffield from the early 12th century when William de Lovetot built the first church on this site and established the township of Sheffield, through to the newly refurbished and welcoming building which today invites you to explore and learn more about the stories and the heritage told by this remarkable building.

  1. I bet it has a lot of stories to tell…

  2. Why was this amazing building granted Cathedral status as late as 1914? Surely Sheffield deserved a bishop’s throne much earlier.

  3. It looks a beautiful cathedral. I just love all the history in churches and cathedrals.

    This is such a wonderful architecture and I am surprised by the “minimal” decoration inside. Love the ceiling.
