Crookes Foodbank & Broomhall Foodbank
At STC we work in partnership with S6 Foodbank which is run from St Thomas Philadelphia, the largest Foodbank in Sheffield with 11 distribution points and part of the Trussell Trust Foodbank Network.
The aim is to create a safe space where people are welcomed and treated with dignity and respect. As well as providing food we seek, where possible, to help people move on from their current circumstances so that they will not need to continue to access the Foodbank. When appropriate prayer is offered and there are conversations about Jesus and faith.
The two Foodbanks are run by volunteers. There are different roles within the Foodbanks both involving beneficiary contact and not.
Revive Café runs every other Saturday lunchtime from the back of the Cathedral and provides light lunches to those who are homeless.

CAP is a renowned charity with an excellent reputation of helping people become debt-free, and they are also zealous in their desire to see people encounter Jesus. STC partners with the Debt Centre, with so far one volunteer Debt Coach and one employed Debt Coach. There are various volunteering opportunities with the Debt Centre.
