Giving thanks for our Living in Love and Faith Chaplains

First published on: 17th June 2022

Bishop Bev has given thanks for the work of the Living in Love and Faith Chaplains who have offered vital support for individuals, parishes, and deaneries as we engaged with Living in Love and Faith

Bishop Bev commented "I would like to express my warmest thanks, on behalf of us all, to all the chaplains for their commitment to this role over the past eighteen months and for their significant part in helping to create a safer braver space for the LLF material to be rolled out in this diocese"

The work of our chaplains was recognised at a formal service towards the end of April.

The Living in Love and Faith engagement was formally launched in November 2020. Due to the pandemic, the consultative period was extended to 30th April 2022. However, our hope is that church groups will continue to use the LLF material and group work for their own learning with regard to gender, relationship, sexuality and marriage and how, as a church, we live well together with people who hold differing views to ourselves.  

Throughout the consultation period, Liverpool has established a chaplaincy service to serve the diocese.  This has comprised lay and ordained Christian Listeners/Companions, largely from the Spiritual Directors’ Network, and a couple of ordinands from the Diocese of Chester, all from across the rich traditions of the Church and all with a commitment to wellbeing.    Each chaplain has participated in ongoing training for this role and remained committed to the Liverpool LLF Chaplaincy Network under the excellent leadership of the Revd Dawn Harrison.  

Bishop Bev added her thanks to our parishes and deaneries who engaged with LLF "On behalf of the Team, I would like to thank all the people and parishes that have engaged in LLF.  When LLF began, nobody had any idea there would be a world pandemic.  These have been difficult circumstances to roll out such a comprehensive programme.  I’m enormously grateful for Liverpool’s impressive participation in this." 


LLF Oversight Team

The LLF Oversight Team comprising Canon Mal Rogers, Revd Amanda Bruce, Kieran Bohan, Warren Hartley, Revd Dan Leathers and Bishop Bev shall continue to meet, though less frequently over the next 12 months or so.
