News from Liverpool Cathedral - A place of Encounter


Catch up on the latest news from Liverpool Cathedral for Sunday, 12 September

Welcome from Dean Sue

A very warm welcome to this week’s e-news. As we begin to settle in to Autumn we have a short breathing space before the many Discipleship courses begin and before the business of the run up to Christmas.

On Sunday we welcome back the choirs after their summer break. It is good to see some new faces and some returning folk and we look forward to a rich variety of music over the coming months.

This week the Canon Theologian has suggested that we ‘Follow the Clues’. By that he wants us to reflect on who Jesus is and to follow the clues that we are given in Sunday’s Gospel reading from Mark.

Who is this man called Jesus? How do you make yourself known to us?

Lord Jesus Christ,

you made yourself known to Peter,

and Peter recognised you as the Messiah.

Make yourself known to us,

when we break bread in your name;

for we recognise you,

as our Lord and Saviour.


Dean Sue

Cathedral Confirmation Service – Sunday 7th November 2021
We are delighted that the Bishop of Liverpool will be joining us this November to preside at a Confirmation service. Confirmation is the occasion when we can confirm the promises made by us or for us at Baptism in a special service in which the Bishop lays hands on our heads to ask for God’s continuing blessing and anointing of the Holy Spirit. If you are interested in being confirmed, then please speak to Canon Philip, if you are part of the Music Department, or Canon Neal if you are part of the wider Cathedral community.


Community Roll
We are in the process of updating our Community Roll, the list of members of the Cathedral, including those who live further away but who retain an active interest. It can also include people who join us on-line for worship, discipleship and other activities. It has been a very valuable resource for the clergy through lockdown, to help us keep in touch. If you are not on the Roll, or need to update your details, please go to the link below, to complete and submit the simple form linked here:  Thank you. If you have any queries, then please contact Canon Neal on
