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.

We have recently launched the Liverpool Cathedral Podcast. Tune in on your favourite streaming platforms to join our podcast community. There is the opportunity to explore and deepen your faith with our series The Bible Today. We're currently looking at the New Testament book of Philemon with Canon Rev Dr Neal Barnes and our curate, Rev Debs Davies hosting the conversation.

Bible Study

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

On Thursdays we run bible studies in-person and online. Join us from 1-2pm at Liverpool Cathedral or login to Zoom from 7:30-9pm. 


The Bible Course

On Wednesday evenings we run the Bible Course which introduces the Bible in an accessible, engaging way. Whether you've just start reading the Scripture or whether you've been reading your whole life, this course brings people together and takes us back to the basics.
The next course will launch in May 2024, 7:30pm on Zoom.

Sign up to the course by emailing: Debs.Davies@liverpoolcathedral.org.uk

The Romans Course

Next year we are excited to deep dive into a new resource from The Bible Society based on the apostle Paul's letter to the Romans. Andrew Ollerton guides us through the letter in his book, Romans: A Letter that Makes Sense of Life. If you would like to join our course, this book makes a great handbook.

The course will take place on Thursday evenings via Zoom in Spring 2024.

Who is Jesus? The "I AM" Statements

On Thursday afternoons in the autumn, we are hosting a series based on the "I AM" statements of Jesus. 

We will look at:

"I AM"
"The Bread of Life"
"The Light of the World"
"The Shepherd and the Gate"
"The Resurrection and the Life"
"The Way, the Truth, and the Life"
"The Vine"
"The Alpha and Omega"

The course takes place over 8 weeks in the Presentation Theatre at Liverpool Cathedral, starting Thursday 28th September, 1pm. All are welcome to join us. To find out more, email: Debs.Davies@liverpoolcathedral.org.uk


The Lectio Course

In August we are excited to run the newly launched Lectio Course by 24/7 Prayer. From the makers of The Prayer Course, this resources teaches the practice of lectio divina and encourages Christians to read the Scriptures prayerfully, in the presence of the Holy Spirit. This is different from Bible study as the Lectio Course focuses on how we read the Scriptures in our attitude and posture, and who we read them with, in relationship with God.

We meet weekly in August starting Wednesday 2nd August, 7:30 pm on Zoom.

Sign up to the course by emailing: Debs.Davies@liverpoolcathedral.org.uk


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.
