Penistone and Thurlstone Team Ministry

Welcome, Hospitality and Belonging

You are very welcome!

It is so good to be able to welcome you to our ministry team of churches. We are five churches incorporating two parish churches in both Penistone and Thurlstone as well as three “daughter” churches within the Penistone parish.

In our logo, these churches are depicted as tent-like structures, each with their distinctive characteristics and tastes.

The parish Churches of St John’s Penistone and St Saviour’s Thurlstone hold services each Sunday, with the daughter churches holding services less frequently. Provision for communion is to be found weekly within the team , and there is monthly provision in terms of ministry for families and children through Messy church in particularly and cafĂ© church. We even have Live – streaming available from St John’s if you would prefer to join that way. Details of all our services can be found on our ‘Live Church‘ page.

To whichever of our team ministry churches you decide to come, we hope that you will find a warm welcome among us, some hospitality and a place where you feel that you could belong.

You may wish to come to offer your help in some way, or to explore possibilities for Christian service or just to come and be still. What ever your thoughts as team Rector and oversight minister and on behalf of our curate Jo and other colleagues in ministry, I welcome you and look forward very much to meeting you.

Yours in Christian Service,
