Sheffield Community Church is a part of Salt & Light Ministries UK (in Synergy Sphere led by Aled Griffith, Community Church Nottingham). Salt & Light is an international family of churches and leaders.
S&L developed in the early 1970s around the leadership of the late Barney Coombs as leaders and churches were drawn together by a common desire to see the Body of Christ grow to be all God wants it to be.This has grown into an international family of several different apostolic spheres across the world, joined through the relationship of leaders. The International Team is currently led by Steve Thomas (Oxfordshire Community Churches).
The core leadership of our family of churches has certain beliefs, values and commitments. This is how we want to live together in our part of the family of God! As leaders we will live according to these core commitments. We will preach and teach these commitments in our conferences and training, constantly calling up churches to them.Recent discussions on the need for greater cohesion to provide a greater degree of mobilisation for the mission God has called us to, have led to a call for greater clarity on what the Salt & Light family of churches stand for and are committed to. They describe us now – the result of walking together relationally for 25 years – and so they are also the foundation for where we want to go together.
