“A Season For Growth”, Courses for Lent and beyond @ Liverpool Cathedral


 

Hope the information below is of interest? All are welcome to attend one or more of these events.

 

Lecture - Benedict (09).

           Benedict and the Bible     

                                         3rd, 10th, 17th, 24th and 31st March @ 7:30pm

     in the Lady Chapel

This year we are offering a Lent course that is practical, straight forward, yet challenging, looking at the Bible and Benedict’s own writing. Of all the great Christians of the past Benedict was one of the most practical when it came to prayer, and learning to live as a Christian growing in faith and closeness to Christ. During these sessions, we will think about:

* Personal prayer and spiritual life

* Being part of the wider community

* How as Christians we relate to the issues of the world around us.

Holy Week talks

6th, 7th, 8th and 9th April @ 7:30pm in the Lady Chapel

A series of four talks for Holy Week, set within a service of Compline to aid our spiritual preparation for Easter and encourage our deeper reflection on the familiar story. Our speaker is Christopher Rowland, Dean Ireland Professor of the Exegesis of Holy Scripture in the University of Oxford and Canon Theologian of Liverpool Cathedral. Chris has a long association with Liverpool, particularly its urban communities, as well as being an expert on the New Testament and its interpretation in the reality of today’s world. We are delighted he can give this first series of Liverpool Cathedral Holy Week Talks.

Monday – Contemplating the widow

Tuesday – Contemplating Judas

Wednesday – Contemplating Caiaphas

Thursday – Maundy Thursday set within the Eucharist at the High Altar

If you are interested then please come along, everyone is welcome.

 

UNWRAPPING THE SERVICE

Sunday 3rd,10th and 17th of May @9:00 – 10:00am

 

Many of us have been coming to services at the Cathedral or elsewhere, for many years, and we are familiar with  words and actions we use, but we are often less sure what they actually mean. This matters because the words, symbols and actions we use in worship define our "working theology", and shape our views of God and Christian faith. In each of theses three sessions we will look at one part of our service, and discuss what the words mean, how they have been understood by Christians across time and place, and difference they make to us. These sessions are open to all – come whether youalready know a lot or a little –  but please do sign up in advance so we know the numbers.

  • May 3rd The Lord’s Prayer
  • May 10th The Creed
  • May 17th The Eucharist
