This virtual service will première at 4pm on Sunday 20th December, and will be available to view on demand via YouTube throughout the Christmas Season.
The video will be available on this page and will ‘go live’ at 4pm on Sunday 20th.

Featuring readers from groups across Broomhill and Broomhall, and musical contributions from:
St Mark’s Choir
The St Mark’s choir is composed of members of our congregation and friends. When it has been safe to do so, they have been recording hymns and music which has greatly enriched our worship during the pandemic. The choir is directed by David Willington (Director of Music), and is accompanied by Joshua Stephens (Organist).
The Steel City Choristers
Steel City Choristers are a choir of children and adults in Sheffield. Our core mission is to help bring the rich variety of Anglican choral music into worshipping communities of all traditions around the city and beyond, while providing young people from around the city a strong musical education. The choir is directed by Joshua Stephens.
The Caroenavirus Singers
The Caroe family (with Jeremy Dawson in their bubble) have been recording music to document their experience and entertain during the pandemic. They have also been using their videos to help raise money for the charity Help Musicians.
This year we would like
to invite you to support
the Broomhall Centre Homework Club.
The Community facility for Broomhall and City wide priority groups
We support a multi-racial inner-city community. This request is to part fund our Homework & Coding Club which is for Broomhall Children who have suffered so much during the pandemic.
Even in normal times 64% of our children leave primary school below standard, they suffer from family poverty (34% unemployed) lack of language (36% born outside UK) and crowded housing. Before Covid the club supported over 30 children. It brought together the children with student volunteers living in Broomhall. Emily, the coordinator, recruits and trains students and manages the club.
The children (aged 7-17) have lost schooling and have not been able to benefit from home schooling. During our closure Emily has kept contact and supported the children from a distance.
The club now has a hugely expanded role to assist these children to get back into education. The building is now Covid secure. One to one sessions are being organised. Funds are sought to supplement two grants already committed to pay the coordinator and premises costs for a year. Total needed £12,000 Total requested £5,000.
