خوش آمدید به کلیسای ایرانیان
The Iranian Fellowship meets on Thursday evening at 7.30pm in the hall. The meeting begins with testimonies, and then Bible teaching, followed by a time of worship. All is either in, or translated into, Farsi. On the last Thursday of the month, the teaching is given by Pastor Reza Sotudeh (see pic right and below) and the meetings start at 7pm.
We are excited by the work that God is doing among the people of Iran, and other nearby states. Read this link from Premier Christianity that shares something about what we are experiencing now in CRB with our Iranian Fellowship.
As well as Farsi speakers from Iran who are Christian or exploring the Christian faith, we have a significant number of Kurds, and individuals from Afghanistan, Turkey, Iraq, and Azerbaijan.
The Fellowship also offers:
- Pastoral support for asylum seekers and those granted leave to remain looking to settle in Sheffield
