In an area famed for friendly welcoming people there is something for everyone in the Diocese of Liverpool. We minister in a rich mix of bustling urban communities, tranquil rural areas and historic market towns. From the coastal resort of Southport; the rich industrial heritage of Wigan,Widnes and St Helens; to the city bustle of Liverpool itself there is a home for all.
Ministry in the Diocese of Liverpool is challenging, exhilarating, stimulating and ultimately rewarding. We are a diocese that prizes the creative, celebrates the diverse and welcomes all. We value the richness of our urban and outer estate communities and the mutually supportive relationships between our highly varied church and local communities.
