Remembrance Sunday 2015

7000 petals scattered in St. Chad's to commemorate Remembrance Sunday.Several hundred people turned out to pay their respects for Remembrance Sunday this year, despite the conditions. This was the last year at the cenotaph in its current location, and as last year, the parade then went into St. Chad’s for a brief service, remembering the 75th anniversary of the start of the Liverpool Blitz. Cadets read some first hand experiences and memories, images of the blitz brought back memories for some, and told Liverpool’s story for others, and an evocative soundscape of air raid sirens and bombs, made the memories even more powerful. The event finished with singing Abide with me, and the petals scattering showing that despite so many losing their lives, they are not forgotten.

GraveTalk: a cafe space to talk about death, dying and funerals

Votive Candles and Cross January 26, 2004

It’s not easy to talk about death, dying and funerals. GraveTalk is designed to get the conversation started. There are no answers – just thought provoking questions to get you thinking – and talking. Come along for an informal evening over coffee and cake at St. Martins Monday, 28th September, at 7:30pm. All welcome.

We hope to repeat this event in the future – if you can’t make this one, but would like to come to another event, let us know by posting a comment below!


St AndrewsCongratulations to everyone who was confirmed at St. Andrew’s on Sunday by Bishop Paul. Our prayers go with you as you continue on your journey of faith, and especially as you act as crispy seaweed making others thirsty for the gospel.. (I think I’m remembering the bishop’s sermon correctly!)

A huge thank you to everyone from St. Andrew’s who worked so hard putting the service on and hosting so ably, and to the choir for leading the worship.

Liverpool Virginia Pilgrimage 2015-17

Poster - Virginia Pilgrimage 16:17Following the success of the last youth pilgrimage, which welcomed a group of young Americans to the deanery, we’re excited to announce that the opportunity exists for a group of young people from our churches to be involved over the next two years in another journey together, that will involve hard work, spiritual growth, and ultimately, a chance to welcome another group of young people to this country in 2016, and to travel to the US in 2017. For more information, see the posters in our churches.
