Walton Team Ministry Prayer  January 2022

Change of plan

Our prayer walk will start from St Nathanael's at 10.30am on Saturday 22nd January. Leaving the church we will head to the loop line and down to Walton Hall Avenue. Halfway will be just before St Aidan's. We are hoping to be at St Aidan's for around 11.45am, to finishing back at St Mary's,  by 12.30pm

Please note Everton are playing at Home, so the St. Luke's leg of the walk will happen after St Mary's not before. 

It is 3 miles or 5km in total.

Please do join us and if that's part way through you can always ring me for the location 07941652488  

Father breathe your Holy Spirit on us as we journey into the uncertain future. Help us clear away any prejudices that

divide us.
May we become together a united Walton Team;
embracing the challenges that lie ahead, so we may further your work in our

churches and our communities, not erasing our church's histories but acknowledging the lessons we have learned, building on our past to grow stronger together as the Walton Team

united in Christ's love. Amen

Jean Hynes

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 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.

Pray with us

To pray ‘thy will be done’, I must be willing, if the answer requires it, that my will be undone.

Elisabeth Elliot

 

Come Holy Spirit, soul of my soul,

I worship and adore you

Enlighten, guide, strengthen and console me.

Show me what to do and help me to do it.

I hope to use well any gifts you may bestow on me

and to accept all that happens to me,

only show me your will. Amen

 

Give me, Lord,

a humble, quiet, peaceful, patient, tender and generous mind,

and in all my thoughts, words and deeds

a taste of the Holy Spirit.

Give me, Lord,

a lively faith, a firm hope, a fervent generosity

and a deep love for you.

Take from me anything that is lukewarm in my devotion,

anything that is dull in my life of prayer.

Give me gratitude in thinking of you

and of your goodness to me.

And then, Lord, give me the grace

to work hard for the things for which I pray!

Through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen

A prayer after Thomas Moore

 

"For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD,

plans to prosper you and not to harm you,

plans to give you hope and a future." ...  Jeremiah 29:11

 

May our prayers echo that of the Psalmist’s: 

“You are my refuge and my shield; I have put my hope in your word” Psalm 119:114,

 

May our work in our churches be a joy

because it is done in your name;

may our ideas be fruitful,

because they come from you,

may our presence be a blessing,

not a hindrance, to those with whom we work.

May your Spirit draw us closer

to one another and to you.

 

Holy God, our only hope is in you.

We thank you for the past, trust you for today and believe for the future;
that all your promises will come to pass so we can rest forever in your love. Amen

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!
