About Sheffield Jesus Centre

The Vision

Jesus Centres are places where the love of Jesus is expressed daily in worship, friendship and help for every type of person. The homeless and disadvantaged find a particular welcome at Jesus Centres.

We currently have 9 paid staff, mostly part-time, and around 45 to 50 volunteers.  Some of our volunteers came initially as visitors. Others are students, and others are from Jesus Fellowship and other churches.

Feeling valued, being trained and interacting with others from all sorts of walks of life proves to be a life-enriching experience for our volunteers and staff.

Volunteer Induction

Lucy McGuren, Volunteers and Sewing Tutor

All volunteers are required to have an informal interview and induction session with the Volunteer Co-ordinator before beginning as a volunteer. Contact lucy.mcguren@nullsheffieldjesuscentre.org.uk if you are interested. She will arrange to meet you and show you around!




Some statistics

Last year over 830 distinct individuals were logged as visitors to a service at our Help Desk.

The Lounge Drop-in serves around 15 people per day (twice a week).

In 2018 we recorded 595 outcomes, instances where we could see that someone had made progress in their life, or been significantly impacted by some help we had provided.


Working With Other Agencies

We are blessed in Sheffield to have many other local services which we can refer people to and who send people to us.  This network includes the Cathedral Archer Project who help many vulnerable people and refer many to us for clothing. It also includes Assist who do a brilliant job supporting asylum seekers in our city, and refer many to our Foodbank. Other agencies that refer clients to our S6 Trussell Trust Foodbank include GPs, the Probation Service, the 911 Project, and Places for People’s Victoria Court.
