September 2021 Update

We wanted to update you as to where we are regarding TimeBuilders Sheffield. Covid has affected St Mary’s in a big way.  We have had to adapt to help those that most needed it. 


We have provided food parcels for those that needed food and have then gone on to open a Social Supermarket for people who are struggling to afford enough food for themselves and their families. At the moment we are only able to focus on our work with members of the social supermarket as we have limited capacity.


We have loved working with you all and have soooo many good memories of TimeBuilders.  However, for the foreseeable future we are very sorry to say TimeBuilders and all its activities won’t be opening up again. Please accept our apologies.


If you are interested in seeing what we are currently up to at St Mary's click the button below to be taken to the website. 

If you would like to read and print a leaflet about the Social Supermarket for the PDF. 

Feel free to email for more info.

                                                                                             Wishing you all the best

Get Involved

We make it easy to use your skills, knowledge, passions and time to make a difference to the lives of others.

Help at a project:

For those who want to make a tentative start to volunteering, they can do an hour at a time and build their confidence.

It could be something simple like joining our litter-picking group or a gardening session, cooking meals as a team or helping tidy up after an event. We encourage everyone to get involved something even if they are not sure, because it always feels good to do work that needs to be done.

Come and see us for a chat about what you like to do. contact us

Organise a group:

Groups are great for people to share whatever they are passionate about. Organising a group doesn't mean you're the expert or teacher, but you like to bring people together. If you have an idea for a new group, contact us. Examples of groups are Knitting, Photography, Art for Wellbeing, Creative Writing, Music, Card Making ect.

Run a Class:

Classes have a structured programme of learning and a teacher with a particular skill or knowledge. It could be a one-off workshop or a regular series. If you have an idea for a Class, please ask contact us. Examples of Classes are Zumba, Watercolour, Guitar, Spanish ect.
