More important than anything else in Huyton Deanery is our relationship with God through Jesus Christ.
In 2018, Huyton Deanery Synod (the group which oversees Huyton Deanery) discerned a call to re-imagine what 'church' might look like so that our structures, planning and most significantly our culture might better help us grow in effectiveness, sharing the news of Jesus in our communities and our work together to overcome barriers of injustice.
Listening carefully to what God's Holy Spirit is saying to the church, listening carefully to each other, and listening carefully to our communities has become a key role of the newly formed Deanery Leadership Team, made up of lay and ordained leaders from across the deanery.
A renewed sense of belonging first to God and then to each other is bringing about a step change in what we imagine and achieve together. Our vision is to grow deeper and broader as a deanery, echoing the diocesan vision of becoming a bigger church, in order to make a bigger difference, more people knowing Jesus, more justice in the world.
Please do speak to your Huyton Deanery church leader if you wish to know more.
