Pray with us

 

 

In our noisy, cantankerous world maybe we need listening prayer …

 

We must listen to what is supporting us. We must listen to what is encouraging us. We must listen to what is urging us. We must listen to what is alive in us.

Richard Rohr

Perhaps one of the most precious and powerful gifts we can give another person is to really listen to them, to listen with quiet, fascinated attention, with our whole being, fully present. This sounds simple, but if we are honest with ourselves, we do not often listen to each other so completely.  Heart communication happens when we slow down, when we quiet down, look, and listen. Stop to take a breath. Become fully present with the person we’re with. Listen with all of our being. At this point, communication can occur without words. Being present is a gift that fills our hearts and spirits. We are in communion.

Kay Lindahl

Lord, So often I come to you with lists and demands.
Like a tornado I spew them out as commands.
To the next task, I move on with my day
Completely missing what you might have to say.
The noise of the world clogs my ears
And clouds my mind with fog and fears.
I need you to clear my senses, O Lord!
Give me a heart in tune with your Word.
May I be ever eager to hear your voice;
May listening continually be my choice. Amen

 

Lord, we think today of people who need to be listened to,

who are experiencing stress and pressure,

who dread going to work, who fear for the future.

Bring to them and to their relationships

Your peace, healing and love.  Amen

 

Heavenly Father, 

I wait upon you.

I pause, still my mind and still my heart.

I wait upon you. 

I stop, and listen beyond the everyday.

I wait upon you.

I rest, and allow my soul to have space.

I wait upon you. 

Quiet, at rest, held.

I wait upon you. 

And call Abba, Abba Father.

I know you have searched me, and you know me.

I know you are the beginning and the end.

I know you are the Redeemer.

I wait upon you, 

Allowing your grace to penetrate my whole being.

And in this place, close, protected and eternal I find that this grace renews my strength,

Wipes away my tears,

And promises new hope.

 

I wait upon you.

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 waltonparishteam@hotmail.co.uk , 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!
