Resources Centre

Pile of Books in a library

Did you know that the Sheffield Diocese has its own resources centre based within Church House in Rotherham Town Centre? Church members from any parish can borrow items for up to four weeks at a time and there are over 11,500 books, DVDs, periodicals, CDs, toys, puppets, learning materials; and so forth; to choose from. But don't take my word for it! Clicking here will take you to their webpage; where further details are to be found. It is free of charge and, as the author of this website can verify, the staff are very helpful; knowledgeable about their subject, and will even offer to make you a cup of tea upon your arrival!

So, there really is no excuse for not paying them a visit to broaden your theological knowledge, hunt down that ever-so-elusive reference, or just browse to see what you can find.
