STATEMENT BY MERSEYSIDE COUNCIL OF FAITHS


Merseyside Council of Faiths at its meeting this evening shares the horror and concern of the attacks on Parliament and other bystanders in the area. The Council is committed to our democratic structures and to working in partnership with the whole community. We abhor violence of any type wherever it occurs and are profoundly shocked by this incident.


We remember and offer our condolences to the family and friends of those killed and maimed. We also express our support for the Emergency Services and all they have done to cope with this horrific incident in Westminster.


We encourage all people to use the Universal Prayer of Peace as a sign of our solidarity with all those affected:


Lead us from death to Life, from falsehood to Truth.

Lead us from despair to Hope, from fear to Trust.

Lead us from hate to Love, from war to Peace. 

Let Peace fill our heart, our world, our universe.

Peace, Salaam, Shalom


Dr Shiv Pande MBE DL and the Revd Dr Sheryl Anderson (Co-Chairs)

Welcome to the website of the Liverpool District of the Methodist Church

Although we bear the name of the great city of Liverpool, with all its associations of music and culture, learning, sport and enterprise, the District is much more than the city. We stretch from Southport in the north to Wirral in the south and include parts of Lancashire and Cheshire to the east. Although predominantly urban, the District does include some rural communities and Churches.

It is a varied and vibrant part of the world filled with much to encourage and excite. And this is true also of the Church, where many faithful people seek to follow the way of Jesus. Across the District, Churches are reaching into their communities in service; new ways of worship and service are being explored; and the District seeks to support and encourage them in this.

In recent years the District has engaged seriously with the issues surrounding our more effective use of the God-given resources available to us in people, time, money and buildings. As a consequence we now comprise 9 Circuits for our, approximately, 6500 Methodist members. This is a process which will need to continue as we seek to be ever more effective in our witness for Jesus Christ and our desire, in all parts of the District, to offer to the communities we serve that hope which is God’s gift to the world in Jesus.

I am glad that you have found your way to our website. Here you will find links to many of the Churches and Circuits of the District. As you browse its pages, I hope that you will find what you are looking for. And the welcome that I offer to you now, I know that you will find within our Churches and from our people.
