Celebrating our multi-cultural city
This is the story of how Christianity came to Britain, to the Northwest, and to Liverpool in particular.
It tells of the first church in the area ~ St Mary’s Walton-on-the-Hill, and of the tiny waterfront chapel in ancient Liverpool ~ St Mary del Quay. It also tells of how this became Liverpool Parish Church of Our Lady and St Nicholas ~ The Sailors’ Church.
Ken describes how the story of religious worship in Liverpool has not been a smooth road at all, but how all faiths have now come together, much more meaningfully than at any time in the City’s past. He talks of how faith always was, and remains vital to the psyche and character of so many Liverpudlians, and how this is not unique to Christians in our City. He tells too the history of the Jewish and Muslim communities in Liverpool and Merseyside, and of how many other faith communities have made their home in the City Region.
Ken also describes the wonderful places of worship of which the City is justly proud, and of how these act as focal points for a diverse community that is facing the future with hope and with faith.
