Eccleshall Road church gains new lease of life

Members of The Well, one of Sheffield’s newest church groups, have contributed £350,000 to buy the former methodist church on Ecclesall Road. The 112 year old church was at risk of being transformed into flats by developers after its former owners struggled to pay for its upkeep. The Well Sheffield Baptist Church, led by the Revd. Nick and Marjorie Allan, has been renting the building since 2015 and has now completed a £785,000 purchase. Baillor Jalloh reports for Sheffield Live!
