Attracting leading practitioners and theologans, Liverpool Cathedral is renowned for exploring issues relevant to our ministry as a prominent cathedral in an urban setting.
We have a regular series of lectures including:
The Prison Week Lecture
The Micah Lecture
Inspired by the same scripture as led to the establishment of our charity Micah Liverpool this annual lecture explores matters relating to social justice. Previous speakers include Bishop Steven Croft, Bishop David Walker, Bishop Pete Wilcox, Bishop Paul Bayes, Canon Lucy Winkett and Ann Morisy and Angus Richie.
The Micah 2021 Lecture
The lecture this year was presented by Chine McDonald on her Book God Is Not a White Man: And Other Revelations:
-What does it mean when God is presented as male?
-What does it mean when, from our internal assumptions to our shared cultural imaginings, God is presented as white?
These are the urgent questions Chine McDonald asks in a searing look at her experience of being a Black woman in the white-majority space that is the UK church - a church that is being abandoned by Black women no longer able to grin and bear its casual racism, colonialist narratives and lack of urgency on issues of racial justice.
