Exploring Faith at Liverpool Cathedral

Here at Liverpool Cathedral, we would love for you to explore your faith and encounter God. Our dedicated and knowledgeable team has developed a range of resources to help you with that encounter. 

This page explores some of these resources.


The Alpha Course is an opportunity for anyone to explore the Christian faith. It’s relaxed, low-key, friendly, and fun. It’s a place where people can come and ask questions, delve into issues and look for answers together. It consists of a series of talks looking at topics such as ‘Who is Jesus?’ and ‘Why and how do I pray?’ After each talk, we divide into small groups for a time of discussion. Alpha is a practical introduction to the Christian faith for everyone, especially those wanting to investigate Christianity or wanting to brush up on the basics.

Bible Study

Bible Study is an important part of the exploration of the Christian faith, and here at Liverpool Cathedral, we offer a regular series of bible study courses to get involved with. 

Our latest course from The Bible Society has 8 sessions and aims to help you explore the big story of the bible. All sessions take place online, with a relaxed and unpressurised atmosphere. You can find out more about the course content, here, or find out how to get involved, here.

This Course begins on the 4 May 2022.


Prayer is all about communicating with God. There is no magical formula for prayer, and no special phrases or words are required. We believe that God wants to hear from us, whatever is happening in our lives, and at Liverpool Cathedral, we offer a range of options to join in Prayer. You can find out more, here.


Many Christians choose to get confirmed, which involves confirming the promises we made at Baptism. You can find out more about this, here.

Exploring The Sunday Gospel

An initiative from Liverpool Cathedral, working with the St. Mary’s Centre, to offer individuals, households, and churches to encounter the gospel reading set each Sunday through the year. The material is released in the week before the gospel is read and looked at, so that we can be prepared to hear it, reflect on it, and apply the teachings and example of Jesus in our daily lives. Each Sunday there is a ‘concrete’ image around which we can think. It contains activities that people of all ages can engage with as we allow God’s word to shape us.
