Pray with us

In a world where change is the only constant…

‘Trust in the Lord for ever, for the Lord, the Lord himself, is the Rock eternal.’ (Isaiah 26:4)

Lord, in a world in which change seems the only certainty –

be the Rock of Ages upon which we can always depend.

 

Lord, in a world in which storms can hit us without notice –

be the shelter that we know we can always return to.

 

Lord, in a world in which it’s hard not to feel overwhelmed –

be our true north, the star that guides us home to peace.

 

Lord, in a world in which dreams fade and hope seems so frail –

be the vision that keeps our faith alive.

 

Lord, in a world in which grief is the price we pay for love –

be our comfort, be our healer, be our hope for eternity.

In Jesus’ name. Amen.

Tearfund

 

In that process of coming to know that which we name as divine, the God who is love is slowly transformed into the love that is God. Let me repeat that…We breathe love in, and we breathe love out. It is omnipresent, omniscient, omnipotent. It is never exhausted, always expanding. When I try to describe this reality, words fail me; I simply utter the name God.

When St Paul enjoined us to ‘pray without ceasing’, did he mean to engage in the activity of praying unceasingly? Or did he mean that we are to see all of life as a prayer?

J.S.Spong Adapted

 

It is not how much love we put in the doing. 

It is not how much we give,

but how much love we put in the giving.

Mother Teresa

 

May the blessing of the Maker be yours,

warmth and welcome and stars dancing in darkness,

circling you, cherishing you

 

May the blessing of the Holy Spirit be yours,

wind and fire and a bright shawl of wisdom,

disturbing you, comforting you.

 

May the blessing of friends and strangers be yours

angels and saints and little ones playing

encouraging you, befriending you.

 

Blessings be yours

in the midst of your journey;

May you be blessed with integrity and courage

in good times and bad times.

 

May you be strong and happy and creative.

May you be cradled and held in love. Amen

Bible Study Group

Are you free on Wednesday evenings from 7:30 till 9.00? If so, then why not join our Bible Study Group which meets each week at this time in either St Nathanael's or the Old Grammar School in the grounds of St Mary’s Church? If you want to delve more deeply into God’s word and thereby grow in faith, or, if you simply enjoy a good discussion and a sharing of views, then this is for you. There are about ten of us at the moment and we come from a wide variety of backgrounds and experience. The discussion is so lively and interesting that, although we set off on a clear path, we often lose the original thread and wander off course because the topic is so wide-ranging and so challenging. However, we all sense that this is the way God wants us to go. We may wander off the pathway but, because it’s the way God wants us to go, the result is very rewarding and very positive. We include some prayers and one or two choruses / hymns and we generally leave feeling  uplifted and blessed. You don’t need any previous Bible knowledge and the course is designed so that you can fit in and join it at any point. Why not give it a try: you might surprise yourself?  If you are interested in joining a group please get in touch with Rev Fiona 07941652488 or Rev Eddie  07787177328.

Welcome!

Welcome to Walton Team Ministry, a group of three churches in the Parish of Walton, Liverpool, that includes Walton Church (St. Mary the Virgin) Walton on the Hill, St Aidan, Cherry Lane, and St. Nathanael, Fazakerley Road.

 

Our history of serving this community is long and varied. In 1086  Walton Church is recorded in the Domesday book and it is known that a church was here at least 200 years before then.  The church of St. Mary's that we see today has been rebuilt and changed many times over the past 1200 years.  Both St Aidan's and St Nathanael's were opened in 1909 and have become the spiritual heart of their communities.

Throughout the many years of being places of Christian witness our ethos and values remain the same - to provide a place and sense of belonging to those who want to worship and serve our God. 

We hope you find our website useful. If you have further questions please do not hesitate to get in touch through our Parish Office by email at waltonparish@outlook.com , or by phone  0151 525 3130.

Full contact details including addresses can be viewed by clicking on the 'Visit Us' tab. 

We look forward to seeing you soon!
