We believe in the power of prayer and thanksgiving. In St Peter’s
Centre and the Church of the Good Shepherd Church, we have placed
prayer boxes and prayer/praise cards. Prayer request cards allow you
to fill out your requests anonymously or share with others to pray together. Praise report cards allows you an opportunity to thank God for answered prayers, His provision, His faithfulness or share a testimony

LJMU Good Citizenship Award

Congratulations to Annabel, Bethan, Emma and Isabelle who were presented with LJMU Good Citizenship Award by comedian John Bishop at St George’s Hall this evening for their fundraising efforts in support of the Rock of Joy Trust. The award recognises the often-overlooked contributions that young people make to society today. West Kirby Grammar School nominated the four girls after they raised £1,300 each to fund their trip to Uganda in 2017 by running cake sales and raffles in school. Their teachers were particularly impressed that when they returned, the girls were so keen to share their experiences with the rest of the school that they offered to lead assemblies for all year groups and talked enthusiastically about the dental hygiene, malaria prevention and menstrual health projects. They also continued to campaign for better Ugandan toilet facilities by selling badges in school (they even managed to sell one to John Bishop tonight!) This resulted in ROJ being nominated as one of the school’s chosen charities last year and led to a donation of £2050 from West Kirby Grammar School (WKGS) at the end of the summer term. Thank you to Mrs. Noble and Mrs. Marley for nominating the girls for this very special award and to Mrs Sargeant and all the staff and students at WKGS for supporting them in their fantastic fundraising efforts. We’d also like to thank the girls for being such wonderful ambassadors for the ROJ Trust and for all the fundraising you have undertaken on our behalf. We are really proud of you and this award is very much deserved.

The Lighthouse

Our presentation on “The Lighthouse” which proposes to transform the Church of the Good Shepherd’s presence on the busy Telegraph Road and invite passers by to engage with all that takes place inside….

We are grateful for those people who have already given in their pledge forms in response to the Lighthouse Church.
Please prayerfully consider how the Lord might be leading you to give towards
this exciting project and return your pledge card by Sunday, 30 September.
We look to God, trusting in his generosity and faithful provision to build the Lighthouse Church.

Life Groups

“A people fully alive in Christ, building God’s kingdom”

To fulfil this vision we all need to invest in our own Christian faith and growth, and to invest in building relationships that help us to follow and serve Christ. In a large Church, small  groups provide an important place to get to know one another and share that journey together.
Over June and July, we are refreshing our small groups as well as starting a number of new ones – all as Life Groups. We hope that you will find a Life Group that you will want to be part of.

Get in touch with us for more details!
