I was in town for a meet-up of other AT3 apprentices on Thursday and Friday and we were taken on a Liverpool church history tour by our director and founder, Ken.
Fun facts are:
The Anglican cathedral in Liverpool was only completed in 1979 in spite of the fact that it looks centuries old.
JC Ryle, Liverpool’s first Bishop is buried there even though he was against building a cathedral in favour of planting churches instead.
Lord Derby, who was also Lord Stanley (as in the Stanley Cup) is also buried there.
It was a really good time getting to hang out with other Americans who are here for the same reason and hearing from Mark Pickles, director of the Northwest Partnership, and Michael Reeves, the president of Union School of Theology.
