Children are a gift from God

On 16th October 2006, the then Bishop of Warrington, the Right Reverend David Jennings, commissioned this area to be the Children’s Chapel during a special service of thanksgiving and prayers.

Whilst on earth, Jesus drew children close to Him because he loved and valued them. In the same way, the Cathedral, through the work of the Education Centre and this designated area, proclaims our commitment to children, their families, future generations and individuals who are in need of comfort.

It is our prayer that whoever comes to this place will experience the comfort, love and peace of Christ and in turn be strengthened in the knowledge of the care and prayers of others.

Jesus said, "Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these.".
(Matthew 19:14)

The Chapel has been designed to be a place of

  • prayer
  • meditation and reflection

It is hoped that the Chapel will be visited by

  • school children
  • families
  • those who have been affected by the loss of a child
  • those who wish to pray for children world wide
