Sad news of the death of Chris Marriott

We are deeply shocked to hear of the tragic death of Chris Marriott from City Church Sheffield who died yesterday after a car hit a group of people which included Chris.

You may have already have seen this on the news, but have been unaware that Chris was a valued and much loved member of City Church Sheffield where he had previously been on the staff team. He had also been part of the management team of our Devoted Event, as well as more recently working with Jubilee Plus and Community Money Advice.

Chris died doing what so many will remember him for – helping others. He had stopped to help an unconscious woman lying in the street and as he was providing first aid, a car collided with Chris, the woman and others. Police have started a murder investigation which is ongoing. 

Our thoughts and prayers are obviously with his wife, and their two young sons. This is an unbelievably awful situation and we are heartbroken for the family. Please pray for them, for Chris’ wider family and friends, and for City Church Sheffield as they try to process this loss. May they all know God’s comfort and grace as they grieve and remember.
