Responding to Coronavirus
Unfortunately we are having to suspend all gatherings at the church, this includes Sunday worship and music events. Please see our detailed response in the letter on our main page. We are still here, but scattered, present but absent. We are still being the church at Waterloo. Please keep in touch, keep supporting, keep encouraging, and staying connected. Get in touch if we can help in any way. (March 2020)
We're delighted to be holding a baptismal service on Sunday 9th February at 3pm. The service will be in our main church building. Please join us if you can.
Our first music night of 2020 is on Friday January 31st when local classical guitarist Tony Crotty will perform. Tickets are available now, and will be on the door. We hope you can join us.

Summer Fun at the Marina

We had a great time at the Marina providing all sorts of activities over three afternoons during August 2019. Thanks to everyone for taking part and who came along and joined in the fun.
We're really excited to be doing Beach Life this year. For a few afternoons in August we will be down at Crosby Marina with a host of fun activities including dancing, giant games, craft, and a photography competition. Come and find us!
We knitted over 100 angels and placed them out and about in the local community this Christmas. Part of the #xmasangels initiative bringing the message of God's love and light into our community. We received one message saying how finding an angel had made someone's day and a picture of it is on top of her tree!

During April 2017 we hosted One Friday, an art exhibition with images by Jenny Hawkes portraying the events of one particular Friday - Jesus' final journey to the cross. Here are some of the comments from visitors to the exhibition:
Sitting in front of each picture after a walk around allowed time to think of my own response.
The pictures are a really powerful way of telling the Easter story up to Good Friday. I loved the style of painting.
Jenny Hawkes' reflections are inspirational and beautifully reflect the paintings, which also leave space for our own thoughts and meditation.
Beause He lives, I can face tomorrow. Thank you for time to reflect. Thank you Jesus that you are the light of the world. I thought the art work was truly inspired.
Good to see these traditional images in a new way and be challenged to follow the journey again. Thank you.
Wonderful exhibition. So much detail. I feel so uplifted. The events of Easter brought to life.
Powerful, striking picture - reflect the messages of our faith. The paintings lead to the fture of faith, hope and love following Our Lord's resurrection.
