Our 250 churches are spread across a region that is both rural and urban, stretching from Southport in the North to Widnes in the South, from Liverpool in the West across to Wigan in the East, serving a population of 1.53 million in an area of 389 sq miles.
The Diocese of Liverpool wants to be a bigger church to make a bigger difference.
We can become a bigger church through multiplying congregations; through create new, fresh expressions of church; through working out in our context what it means to be Disciples of Christ.
Being a bigger church is not enough. We want to make a bigger difference through our social action; through our relationships with the wider community; through being a meaningful presence in people lives. We want to encourage those who are hearing God’s call on their lives to explore their vocation.
We do this because we want to better serve Christ and enable others to know him.
Our bishops and clergy share this vision and want to see it worked out locally through strong devolved Deanery mission planning. We support those who want to make a difference in the service of Christ..
to achieve this we want to see:
Healthy churches at the heart of healthy communities
Excellent church schools promoting Christian education
Christian disciples growing in faith, hope and number
Outstanding Christian leaders for today and tomorrow
Vibrant and inclusive mixed economy churches in and from all traditions
