Over May and June, the railings of the church premises at St James' became a place of prayer. People tied a ribbon onto the railings to signify that they had prayed for someone, a personal difficulty or something that felt needed prayer. Sadly there were a number of tragic incidents during that time. The cross bore 1,292 ribbons, which are a representation of the personal prayers from people in the community.

Great Night For Liverpool City

Centre Street Pastors

An evening of song with, Amanda Henderson (Casualty's Nurse Robyn Miller) saw a full house enthralled at Amandas amazing talent for singing songs from many well know shows. 

This was to raise funds for the church refurbishment program and to support Liverpool City Street Pastors. 

The street Pastors are all volunteers and spend their Saturday nights caring for the revellers in the city centre. This concert raise a significant amount that will help them to continue their work.

Huge thank you to Amanda for giving her time for those cause. For those who didn't make it you missed an amazing evening.
