October at Liverpool Cathedral
On 4 October we ‘waved’ goodbye to the giant hands that made up ‘Connection’, one part of the Being Human that has been in the Cathedral since the end of July.
However, you won’t have to wait too long until our next installation arrives at Liverpool Cathedral, as last week we announced ‘The Light before Christmas’ our new light and sound show that will be here in December.
You can find out more information about The Light Before Christmas here, including how to book your tickets.

Lover of music?
Then look no further, as this month we have a range of musical events and services taking place, including the Festival Evensong & 96th Anniversary Recital, taking place on 15 October. It’s also set to be a special weekend over the 21 and 22 of October as we host Cream Classical: 30 years of Cream. If you’re looking to visit between 17 – 22, please note there will be some disruption to our building.
A passion to learn?
At Liverpool Cathedral we host a range of courses and Bible studies to help those who are curious about exploring faith. This includes our Prayer Course, Old Testament - Pointing to Jesus Bible study and the HESED: Mindfulness and compassion course.
A commitment to Justice
October is Black History Month, and this year's theme is “Action not words”. As a Cathedral, we are committed to our Slavery Truth Project, which acknowledges that we have historical connections with slave traders and the wider slave economy. This is a part of our past that we are not proud of and we are working with the Diocese of Liverpool’s Slavery Truth Project to identify these connections, scrutinise them and explore reconciling ways of responding to our contested heritage. You can find out more about our Slavery Truth Project, here.
We would also like to share with you this resource created by Churches together, which consists of 25 women and 25 men of faith (from a variety of ethnicities), who have pioneered racial justice in church and society over the last 25 years. (https://ctbi.org.uk/black-history-month-2022/)
