Welcome to Christ Church, Dore

Christ Church is the Anglican (Church of England)
parish church in Dore, within the Diocese of Sheffield
and in a Mission Partnership with All Saints Totley.

We seek to be:
a welcoming community of worshippers
who want to be more like Jesus
and lead more people to meet Jesus,
of all ages and background


We are led by Revd Katie Tupling (Vicar) and Revd Ali Creasey (Curate), as well as Ministry led by Revd Di Williams (retired) and a Lay Leadership Team



News:
Bishop Philip North

We regret to announce that Bishop Philip North has withdrawn his acceptance 
to become the next Bishop of Sheffield.

Bishop Philip writes: 
"The news of my nomination has elicited a strong reaction within the Diocese and some areas of the wider Church. It is clear that the level of feeling is such that my arrival would be counter-productive in terms of the mission of the Church in South Yorkshire and that my leadership would not be acceptable to many. 

I am grateful for the love, prayers and care that have been shown me over recent weeks by numerous people,  especially the Archbishop of York, the Bishop of Blackburn and the clergy of the Blackburn Diocese. In particular I would like to thank the Bishop of Doncaster and the diocesan team in Sheffield for their support."

Our Vicar,  Revd Katie Tupling,  writes: 
"I regret the events surrounding Bishop Philip's decision to withdraw as our next Bishop. The media interest,  added to the tensions felt within the Sheffield Diocese, has heightened the pressure on Bishop Philip to hold together a deeply fragile situation. Whilst I respect Bishop Philip's decision to withdraw,  I am disappointed that I did not get the opportunity to work alongside him in this Diocese. We had our theological differences,  which were significant but not insurmountable.  I wish to assure Bishop Philip of my continued support and prayers. "
