A place to explore all the ways in which you can pray with Liverpool Cathedral.


 Prayer for Liverpool

Connect with our virtual prayer community via our Prayer for Liverpool website.

We offer, worship, prayer and activities for children without them physically visiting the Cathedral and we continue to be a place of encounter through Prayer for Liverpool. You can ask us to pray for people who are in need or sick or who have died and two of our clergy will pick up the emails and then pray for them in their daily prayers.

Prayer Shawls

Prayer Shawl Ministry has been a recognised, global, ecumenical, pastoral initiative since 1998. The concept is simple… a personalised, handcrafted item, (often woollen) is created and gifted to someone in need of pastoral encouragement.

Items are worked in the crafter’s own time and at their own pace.

New stitchers across all craft types are always welcome. If you would like to know more please contact The Prayer Shawls Coordinator - Email: prayershawls@liverpoolcathedral.org.uk

Or telephone: Canon Neal on 07496 737320

Prayer Beads

Using a prayer tool such as Prayer Beads is an ancient practice that can be traced back to the early Christian church, when stones, pebbles, knotted rope or fringed cloth were all used to help Christians to focus whilst praying.

Christian Meditation

Christian meditation is the practice of the prayer of silence and stillness to get close to God. It is as old as Christianity itself, rooted in the prayer life of Jesus who, we are told in the gospels, regularly took himself off to places of quiet in order to pray.

No previous experience is necessary to join our sessions as direction will be given. Unfortunately, we are unable to offer the weekly Wednesday meditation session at present, however, an online offer from the World Community for Christian Meditation is available at www.meditatiocentrelondon.org

Weekdays from 1.00 - 1.30 pm.

There is also a free World Community for Christian Meditation Lent course 'Introduction to Christian Meditation' which may be found here.

Centering Prayer

Centering Prayer is one particular way of doing Christian meditation which uses a prayer word as a way of anchoring yourself when your thoughts begin to stray. It is based on the teaching of the anonymous 14th century spiritual classic The Cloud of Unknowing. It is a very simple but effective way of beginning to use silence in prayer. We meet on Zoom on Wednesdays from 19:00 - 20:00. The sessions include some conversation about the practice, a way of supporting each other, and a 20 minute time of silence. The sessions are led by Revd Mark Waters who is a trained presenter of Centering Prayer. Please contact Mark for details of the Zoom link at marko.waters@gmail.com
