As we struggle with more dilemmas…to mask or not to mask, locked down or opened up?

 

My Lord God,

I have no idea where I am going.

I do not see the road ahead of me.

I cannot know for certain where it will end.

Nor do I really know myself,

and the fact that I think I am following your will

does not mean that I am actually doing so.

But I believe that the desire to please you

does in fact please you.

And I hope I have that desire in all that I am doing.

I hope that I will never do anything apart from that desire.

And I know that if I do this you will lead me by the right road,

though I may know nothing about it.

Therefore I will trust you always though

I may seem to be lost and in the shadow of death.

I will not fear, for you are ever with me,

and you will never leave me to face my perils alone.

Thomas Merton

 

LIFE

Life is an opportunity, benefit from it.

Life is beauty, admire it.

Life is bliss, taste it.

Life is a dream, realize it.

Life is a challenge, meet it.

Life is a duty, complete it.

Life is a game, play it.

Life is costly, care for it.

Life is wealth, keep it.

Life is love, enjoy it.

Life is mystery, know it.

Life is a promise, fulfil it.

Life is sorrow, overcome it.

Life is a song, sing it.

Life is a struggle, accept it.

Life is tragedy, confront it.

Life is an adventure, dare it.

Life is luck, make it.

Life is too precious, do not destroy it.

Life is life, fight for it.

Mother Teresa

 

We pray:

For Jacqui and David and so many others suffering from Covid, Long Covid or in fear of Covid

For those who minister to them in surgeries, hospitals and vaccination centres

 

For refugees casting their hope out to sea in fragile vessels

For people in Germany whose homes and livelihoods have been swept away

 

For those who mourn – the Griffiths, Fielding and Joyce families.

 

For children and their teachers as they look forward to respite at the end of term

 

God, we thank you for who you are and for all you have done for us. We praise you when life is hard. We praise you when life is happy. We choose to thank you for all that’s in-between. In Jesus’ Name, 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.ukor 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!
