Heritage Day

thU25QHMTL - Copy We welcome all our visitors in 2016 to St Mary Wavertree.  You will find us on the corner of North & South Drive.  Do come and see our beautiful church and the refurbishment that has been done a few years ago, which enables us still to be a sacred space and a community space for the people of Wavertree.  The best time to come and join us, is on a Sunday morning for worship and a cup of coffee and cake after the service, when we would love to chat with you.

Church Child Friendly Award

St Mary's was presented with the Church Child Friendly Award by the Diocese of Liverpool for the third time.  We believe it is really important to value everyone iChild Friendly Churchn our congregation and our children are as much a part of the church as the adults.  Achieving this award is a credit to our children and youth work and I would like to pay tribute to our leaders of Rainbows, Brownies, Guides, Sunday Club and Youth Club for their dedication to the young people of this area.

Recently the church was turned into a labyrinth.  To tie in with Ascension Day there was an opportunity to 'go up to heaven'.  The labyrinth had four prayer stations plus the centre - a place to meet Jesus at the cross.  Over 40 adults and children walked through it and had the opportunity for some space with God.
