On 16th October 2006, the then Bishop of Warrington, the Right Reverend David Jennings, commissioned this area, next to the Chapter House, to be the Children’s Chapel during a special service of thanksgiving and prayers.

Children are a gift from God

Jesus drew children close to Him because he loved and valued them. In the same way, the Cathedral, through the work of the Education Centre and this designated area, proclaims our commitment to children and families, future generations and individuals in need of comfort.

It is our prayer that whoever comes to this place will experience the comfort, love and peace of Christ and in turn be strengthened in the knowledge of the care and prayers of others.

The Chapel has been designed to be a place of prayer, meditation and reflection.

We hope that the Chapel will be visited by

  • schoolchildren.
  • families.
  • people affected by the loss of a child.
  • those who wish to pray for children worldwide.
