Above all else, the Cathedral's Mission is to proclaim that Jesus Christ is alive and that His Gospel is true and relevant to today's world. The Cathedral must seek to live out the Christian faith, a faith rooted and grounded in the life of Jesus Christ. It offers its life as a resource centre for the Christian church on Merseyside, the Diocese and across the region and is a place where skills, expertise, faith and understanding are gathered together in the service of God's kingdom.
The cathedral is a centre of worship and celebration, exploring the mystery and glory of God and responding to His love. It is a centre of Learning, obeying Christ's commission to make known the Gospel through preaching, worship, education programmes and special events. It is a centre of hospitality, welcoming all of our visitors from all corners of the globe, and affirming our common humanity.
