Many of us are missing hearing the choir sing at St. Mary's. One of the choir Dad's, Alan Lucas, recorded the choir at Christmas. Some of the carols can be heard here;
As Lent approaches and we remain under the highest social distancing restrictions we are planning to hold a Lent Bible study via a Whatsapp Group. If you would like to join us please do phone me on 07942652488 for the link.
Revd Jean Flood is leading a small group of us in prayer both via email and as a Whatsapp Group.

On this Day of Reflection….
Lord we give thanks for the gift of tears;
For tears of grief, redeeming our mourning from despair;
For tears of anger, awakening our thirst for justice;
For tears of laughter, celebrating our joy in living,
May the light of Christ shining through our tears
Become the rainbow of your promise,
Shedding colours of your love’s bright presence
In your grieving, struggling, laughing world.
God of all care and compassion,
hear our prayer for each broken family
And every broken heart.
Hold them through the pain of grief,
Surround them with the gentle care they need
And give them strength for the future that is yet to be. Amen
Lord Jesus Christ,
when fear and anxiety besiege us
and hope is veiled in grief,
hold us in your wounded hands
and make your face shine on us again
for you are our Lord and God. Amen
For all those we love but see no longer
For all those suffering Long Covid
For all those exhausted through serving and ministering to others
For our city and its councillors as they await a future unknown

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.
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 firstname.lastname@example.org , or by phone 0151 525 3130.
