This week’s News from Liverpool Cathedral – a Place of Encounter
Catch up on the latest news from Liverpool Cathedral for Sunday, 14th November
Welcome from Dean Sue
Welcome to this weeks Cathedral e-news. November is a month of remembering as we think about those who have died and especially this coming week those who have lost their lives through war. On Sunday we will host the City Remembrance Service and this is a great honour and privilege for us as a Cathedral to do so. As we remember those who have died or been injured as a result of war we pray for peace and for the hope that living in peace brings.
God of peace, whose Son Jesus Christ proclaimed the kingdom and restored the broken to wholeness of life: look with compassion on the anguish of the world, and by your healing power make whole both people and nations; through our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. Amen.
Remember our Eucharist on Sunday is at 3pm.
Canon Mike is preaching this Sunday morning at Mossley Hill Parish Church
Canon Myles is presiding and preaching at St Christopher, Norris Green.

Yes, it’s back! We are looking forward to re-starting our community lunches – with the first being held on Sunday 21st November at 12:15 in the Dining Room. All are welcome from all communities within the cathedral. To maintain being safe and cautious for this first one, please bring your own food, just for yourself….and we will provide hot drinks and juice. But, as before……all are welcome and we can have lunch together whilst enjoying each other’s company, in friendship and fellowship!

Worship with us this week
Join us in person for 8:30am Morning Prayer and the 12:05 pm Eucharist on weekdays and Saturdays, and Evensong/Evening Prayer at 5:30pm on weekdays and 3pm on Saturdays. Click the following link and look below the main banner of our website beneath ‘Services’ for each day’s in-person service offerings and locations: www.liverpoolcathedral.org.uk/.
The livestreaming of worship is under review, as some of our volunteers take a break, and we await the installation of further kit. As the Cathedral is being used more for large events it is not possible to leave equipment and wires around the building, as was the case earlier in the year.
Nevertheless, the 8:30am service of Morning Prayer (Mon-Sat) and Holy Communion (Sundays) continues to be streamed to the Cathedral Facebook page.
To stream a service on Facebook, follow this link to our Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/LiverpoolCathedral.
Streaming to YouTube will resume when the new equipment is installed.

This autumn on Sunday mornings the Choral Eucharist will be joined at 10:30am by a new ministry, based around the Well, aiming to interact with visitors drawn into the building, while the eucharist is being celebrated, using the Exploring the Sunday Gospels material. This prompts a rearrangement of some of the liturgical space. The nave altar has moved to under the Dulverton Bridge, and in that location near the entrance will be the normal focus for the daily 12:05 eucharist. On Sundays at 10:30 the Choral Eucharist will be celebrated at the high altar, and seating has been moved forward and arranged so that it is the visible focal point. A number of seats spaced further apart are available in the Presbytery, up between the Cathedral choir and the high altar. Holy communion will now be offered again in both kinds at the 10:30am service, but there is no obligation for any communicant to receive the chalice if they remain concerned. We hope this arrangement will make good use of the great space we have been given, drawing people in different ways into communion with God.
If you would like somebody to be remembered in the Cathedral’s regular prayers please email Verger Keith James at: email@example.com The prayer list will begin anew every two months, so if you would like somebody to be prayed for by name over a
