The Diocese of Sheffield was founded in 1914 and contains the whole of the city of Sheffield, the Borough of Rotherham and the Borough of Doncaster. In addition, it contains much of the Borough of Barnsley and areas of the East Riding of Yorkshire around Goole across to the edge of North Lincolnshire. Consequently, we serve almost 1.2 million people across South Yorkshire and adjoining areas.

The Diocese currently has 176 parishes (205 churches and 150 benefices). These parishes are served by 137 stipendiary clergy; around 30 self-supporting ministers and over 400 licensed Readers and other lay ministers. There are twelve deaneries and two archdeaconries in the Diocese. The Diocese contains many contrasts in terms of relative wealth and poverty with very many areas of both urban and rural deprivation. The churches vary very significantly in terms of ecclesial tradition and size.
