We often recognise the first time visitor by the way they’re awed by this magnificent building as they enter. There is nothing quite like encountering us for the first time, no matter what the reason for visiting is.

Liverpool Cathedral is more than an iconic building. It’s a vibrant, active place that the people of the city, regions and world encounter in many ways.

People choose to have a relationship with Liverpool Cathedral us for many reasons: to support the range of styles and traditions of worship, to ensure that this Grade I architectural wonder is passed on to future generations, or as a proud tribute to the city they love.

Our supporters

During this time of Lockdown we have had plenty of time to reflect on how fortunate we are and how difficult it is for institutions we depend on. We made a decision to increase our monthly, gift aided, donation. A drop in the pond, we know , but who knows how far the ripples spread.

Well known admirers of Liverpool Cathedral

Liverpool Cathedral is unique, as is the city.

– Archbishop of Canterbury, The Most Revd and Rt Hon Justin Welby, speaking to the Liverpool Echo in 2007 during his previous role as Dean of Liverpool

When I met up with John, he had a flat at Gambier Terrace, the first place I ever went to stay out all night. We`d kip on mattresses on the kitchen floor listening to some Johnny Burnett record, and still the Cathedral would loom at you through every window of the flat. You couldn`t escape it.

– Sir Paul McCartney

It is one of the great buildings of the world … the impression of vastness and height no words can describe.

– Sir John Betjeman

We came here in summer for my sister’s graduation and I was blown away by how gorgeous the building was.
