There's plenty to see and lots of hidden gems so one visit is rarely enough.


In light of the instructions given by the Prime Minister to stay in their homes in a national effort to limit the transmission of the coronavirus (COVID-19), we are closing the doors of Liverpool Cathedral to all our visitors.

While our building is closed and we are not able to offer you a face-to-face, physical encounter, you can encounter our love and support virtually. Use the Cathedral’s new website, for reflection and prayer and also to remember loved ones.


A prayer in lockdown

The doors of the house where the disciples had met were locked. (John 20.19)

Ever-present God,

be with us in our isolation,

be close to us in our distancing,

be healing in our sickness,

be joy in our sadness,

be light in our darkness,

be wisdom in our confusion,

be all that is familiar when all is unfamiliar,

that when the doors reopen

we may with the zeal of Pentecost

inhabit our communities

and speak of your goodness

to an emerging world.

For Jesus’ sake.



First-time visitors will have their breath taken away. Come again and you will discover more and more about this great building.
