We recently re-envisioned The Crowded House as a group of church planting networks. As we’ve grown into several congregations in more than one location, it’s becoming increasingly hard to be closely involved with one another. So we have organised the congregations into two networks in Sheffield and one nascent network in Loughborough. The Crowded House remains our identity and we all remain committed to the Crowded House values and vision. There is a sense of loss at this moving apart at a relational level, but it is the result of growth and it is where we want to go!
Our network is ‘The Edge Network’ – so named because we work in Nether Edge, Sharrow, Heeley and the London Road areas of Sheffield and because of our desire to welcome people on the ‘edge’ of society.
