Pray with us

Lament and Wonder...

Dear God of love and all that is life-giving;
eternal source of infinite mercy;
wellspring of all goodness;
my soul thirsts for you,
as a drought-plagued land thirsts for soaking rain.

My soul cries out,
and my heart breaks in anguish,
as your enemies revel in their victory: those purveyors of death and destruction, suffering and misery, mock you in myriad ways:
Through the catastrophic fires and floods of global warming, 

which also steal from our children and grandchildren – and all living things – their futures;
Through the mindless brutality, pain and bloodshed of war;
Through the insatiable lust for money and power which afflicts some, 

and which condemns many others to poverty and stunted potential;
And through the ruthless regimes which savagely persecute and oppress, torture and murder.

So come, Holy Spirit, come!
Heal your broken world!
And deliver us from the evils of genocide and ecocide.
Oh Creator, sustainer and redeemer, make haste
to purge us, renew us and make us whole.
Scatter the foul stench of fear and hate with the sweet fragrance of your love,
and cleanse us of our sin.

Oh God of Compassion and Justice,
whose love reaches the furthest star and penetrates every atom,
let not your enemies triumph over you!
Enkindle the fire of your love in every heart,
wake us from the sleep of complacency and indifference,
in which we pursue pleasure and ease at others’ expense,
and stir us to act fearlessly for the well-being of all. 
Oh God of steadfast and unfailing love, do not desert us in this hour of need.

Roland Ashby

 

To you, Creator of nature and humanity,

of truth and beauty, I pray:

Hear my voice, for it is the voice of the victim of all wars

and violence among individuals and nations.

Hear my voice, for it is the voice of all children who suffer

and will suffer when people put their faith in weapons and war.

Hear my voice when I beg you to instil into the hearts of all

human beings the wisdom of peace, the strength of justice,

and the joy of fellowship.

O God, hear my voice, and grant unto the world your

everlasting peace.

Pope John Paul 11

 

God bless this computer:

a heap of switches

that go on and off.

God bless my body:

kilos of chemicals

and a shallow bath of tepid water.

God bless our world:

a minor rock in space.

God bless us with wonder.

David Coleman

 

May you be out of your depth-

as the deeps of the night sky

contain but cannot explain God’s mystery.

May you lose count-

as an infinity of stars

is dazed and amazed by God’s presence.

May you be in the dark-

as the moon is eclipsed,

but held safe, with all that is,

in the palm of God’s hand.

May you be lost for words-

as the Word is spoken

in the silence of the night,

in the beauty of God’s creation.

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 4002.

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

We look forward to seeing you soon!
