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.

Sunday 6th February marks the 70th anniversary of the Queen’s Accession, the beginning of her Platinum Jubilee Year.
