Platform 2

St Hilda’s is not a big church, it’s not flashy and it doesn’t have a lot of resources but Platform 2 was started by a small group of extraordinary people who turned this vision into something that works and connects with people who weren’t previously engaging with church.



The church has a calling to be the voice for the voiceless, to welcome strangers that others won’t and now it is facing a unique opportunity to live out this command on its doorstep. Sepas is already doing this and is a great example of what can happen when churches and their congregations simply say ‘welcome’.

Zone 2

In 2011 Liverpool Cathedral launched Zone2. Each week, at the same time as the traditional service a second congregation meets informally, café style, with all ages worshipping together.
