Church leads city for Pentecost Pageant

Wednesday 4th May 18:30-21:30 and Saturday 14th May 16:30-19:30

Your church is invited to this year’s Pentecost Pageant, our traditional two cathedrals walk on Hope Street.
The walk will start at Liverpool Cathedral with a short act of worship before the choirs, Bishop Paul, Archbishop Malcolm and the Free Church leaders head up the procession to the Metropolitan Cathedral.

Following the success of 2014’s walk of witness this year we have plans for a bigger and bolder expression in partnership with Liverpool City Council and our partners along Hope Street.
Plans are still being put in place for the walk which will include stages for various bands and artists at various locations along the famous street. Echoing the Pentecost theme the street will be emblazoned in a splash of colour as the procession traverses the street culminating at the Metropolitan Cathedral.

Cameras from the BBC will be present to capture the event for ‘Songs of Praise’.
In a new approach the close will be on the plaza of the Metropolitan Cathedral enabling a larger audience to witness the final acts set against the cathedral’s magnificent backdrop.
We anticipate large numbers to be present for this year’s walk which will be a strong act of witness to the city and region.
