This week’s News from Liverpool Cathedral – a Place of Encounter
Catch up on the latest news from Liverpool Cathedral for Sunday, 26th December and Sunday, 2nd January
Welcome from Dean Sue
Welcome and a very happy Christmas and New Year to you all. Like the Church Times and the Radio Times this is a bumper edition. In other words it’s two weeks in one.
I do hope that Christmas is all that you want it to be despite the continued challenges of COVID. There will be many lonely people over this two week period and as a Cathedral family we will continue to pray for you. The Cathedral continues to pray daily over this festive period and we will pray that the peace offered by God through the birth of God’s son will be in all our hearts as we move into 2022.
So thank you all for your commitment to Liverpool Cathedral and may the peace of the Christ child be with you this Christmas and always.
Congratulations and farewell….with many thanks to Revd Dr Hannah Lewis!
Congratulations to Hannah for her new post as Chaplain among the Deaf Community in the Diocese of Oxford beginning at the end of January. Click here to read more.
Reverse Advent Calendar
This year why don’t you do something different for advent? Instead (or as well as) opening the doors on a traditional advent calendar why don’t you take part in our Micah Liverpool Reverse Advent Calendar Campaign!
Worship with us this week
Join us in person for 8:30am Morning Prayer and the 12:05 pm Eucharist on weekdays and Saturdays (Livestream at 8:30 on Sundays), 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: Home: Liverpool Cathedral
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.
'Encountering Common Threads'
Due to the evolving situation of the current Covid-19 wave, there will not be a stitching session on 5th January.
