You are invited to make a journey of exploration through an exciting landscape of life and faith. Let the chemistry of urban life surprise and inspire you. Let it challenge your deepest sense of self knowledge and belief.

Experience the best of humanity where you expect not to find it and share the pain that defiles the beauty of unique human beings. Join us as we explore pathways to wholeness and healing for people and communities and learn never to lose hope.

We believe in the art of the possible, the value of instant improvisation, and that out of the mistakes we will make, we can produce something beautiful. Learn to go beyond horizons of our own making and discover more than we can ask or think.

Take time to savour the art, which offers fresh insight into time-honoured stories of courage and faith in desperate situations; of joy and celebration; of compassion, perseverance, and dogged determination; deep contentment at the fulfilment of endeavour. Encounter the fragrance of generosity of spirit; and the love which embraces injustice and suffering, transforming them beyond all we can imagine.

Join me on this journey that has no end but just gets better. As we walk together, we may discover pearls of great price, and not a little humour on the way.

“Greasy Chip Butty is a textured, local authentic history in a very real and rapidly changing place. Those stories deserve to be studied and celebrated and the wisdom garnered from them needs to be widely shared.” – Steven Croft, Bishop of Oxford.

“What a great read! A moving and wonderful example of doing narrative theology on the hoof … reflecting on change, risk taking and adventure.” – John Thomson, Bishop of Selby

“I read Greasy Chip Butty with delight and new learning. A kaleidoscopic and impressionistic narrative which, through the lens of music and art, shows how God has been at work in one specific neighbourhood of Sheffield.” – Pete Wilcox, Bishop of Sheffield.

Julian Sullivan was born in 1949 in Winterbourne, Bristol. He discovered his early passion for drumming, ranging from rock to jazz. Raised in the Catholic faith, he experienced a life-changing renewal of faith in his early 20s. He pursued a degree in geology, worked as a teacher, and felt a calling to ordination in the Church of England. Training in 1980 led to gritty urban ministry from four years in Southall to 26 years in Sheffield, with three years in Wells, Somerset—no less challenging—in between. Now retired, with his wife, Veronica, and grown-up family, he enjoys beekeeping, playing jazz, chorale singing, walking, gardening, and worship with their new church. Any profit for the author from the sale of this book will go to the Sheffield Urban Theology Union.
