Liverpool Cathedral

Liverpool Cathedral is part of the Anglican Diocese of Liverpool and it is part of the Church of England. Liverpool Cathedral is primarily a place of prayer and worship. At least three times a day the community comes together to worship God and to pray for the needs of the world, the church and people. As a Cathedral, we welcome all and recognise that some staff have no faith, or maybe exploring faith, but all are welcome.

Liverpool Cathedral is a place of encounter. That encounter is between God, people, space, and partnerships. The Cathedral activity is diverse and within that diversity, people will encounter other people, the building and its vast space and local organisations through its partnerships and God.

Our values

Our values are important to the organisation and to each of us as we aim to be inclusive, to act with integrity, to be excellent in all our dealings and operate with a dynamic approach.
