Dressed in costumes from angels to donkeys to sheep, over 1,200 children from Catholic and Church of England schools across the wider Liverpool area attended the service on Wednesday 23 January 2019.
‘Gifts for a King’, the theme of this years’ service included a series of dramas retelling the story of the Epiphany and a dance performed by pupils from Maghull High.
The young congregation was welcomed by Dean of Liverpool Dr Sue Jones. She was joined by Bishop Paul, Rt Revd Thomas Anthony Williams, Auxiliary Bishop of Liverpool along with Canon Myles, Vice Dean of Liverpool Cathedral.
Bishop Paul said:
“It was wonderful to join with the Archdiocese of Liverpool once again for this ecumenical event. The service managed to bring the events of the Epiphany to life for the children and it was great to see how engaged and involved they remained throughout.”
