Despite coronavirus we can still leave heart prints…
Whatever our hands touch…
We leave fingerprints!
On the walls, on the furniture,
on doorknobs, dishes, books.
As we touch we leave our identity.
O God, wherever I go,
Help me to leave heartprints!
Heartprints of compassion,
of understanding and love.
Heartprints of kindness
and genuine concern.
May my heart touch
a lonely neighbour,
Or a runaway daughter,
Or an anxious mother,
Or, perhaps, a dear friend!
Lord, send me out
to leave heartprints.
And if someone should say,
“I felt your touch”,
May that person sense your love
touching through me.
Ruth Harms Calkin
Lord, give me the grace
To be gracious
To the pleading hands
Of our suffering world.
Help me to be like you,
You who stretched out your hands
On the cross
And gave your all.
Help me to be like you,
For you hold me
In the palm of your hand
For all members of the PCC
For future plans and ideas
For our communities much in need of your touch
For the Traders of St John’s Market
For all who long for your healing touch…

St Mary the Virgin
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.
