4th August 100 days to 11th November
"The Presidents of Churches Together in England are joining with Buckingham Palace in recognising the significance of a National Day of Prayer one hundred years ago on 4 August 1918. The National Day of Prayer called that day by King George V, brought the nation together in prayer, asking God to bring peace. The King and Queen Mary joined members of the Houses of Parliament for a special service in Westminster. Services were also held in churches throughout the country. One hundred days later, the Great War ended. From 4 August 2018, in churches across this country, let us mark the 100 days to 11 November with prayers for peace, hope and reconciliation as part of Remembrance 100."

Pentecost 2018 Events in Liverpool
Hope Street Harmony
Our ecumenical celebration and walk took place on Pentecost Sunday.
All Churches and parishes on Merseyside were invited to the Pentecost celebrations in Liverpool.
The celebrations started at Liverpool Cathedral
with an act of worship and continued with a procession along Hope Street - no umbrellas needed. During the procession different choirs from our two cathedrals regaled the walkers.
The proceedings culminated in a mass choral performance on the steps of the Metropolitan Cathedral.
Gathering for the final act of worship

Most peopled had joined in for the whole event which felt like a true celebration. Many Christians from various denominations all experienced the warm atmosphere of the family, a people linked together because they were aware of being brothers and sisters in Christ.

Focus on Young People
CTMR was delighted to welcome Youth Leaders from several denominations within the Merseyside Region for their first ecumenical meeting. The leaders, who included 2 chaplains from our local universities, shared some of their precious experiences. It became clear that each denomination has a characteristic way of working with young people and that there is a great variety which was refreshing and enriching.

The meeting also included a briefing on the BIG HOPE 2, the name given to the International Youth Congress which took place from 13-20th June 2018, at Liverpool Hope University and was a very successful event.
