in the Anglican Diocese of Liverpool

Walton Deanery


​​​Our mission is to help parishes to serve Christ, glorify God and be witness to the saving power of his love through clergy co-operation, the sharing of a mission agenda and resources.


The Walton Deanery is made up nine churches across the Liverpool parishes of Aintree, Anfield, Fazakerley and Walton.


The Deanery is led by the Area Dean, currently the Rev'd Mike Hindley, the Team Vicar at Emmanuel in Fazakerley.


The role of the Deanery is to:-


  • consider matters concerning the Church of England and to make provision for such matters in relation to their deanery, and to consider and express their opinion on any other matters of religious or public interest;
  • bring together the views of parishes of the deanery on common problems, to discuss and formulate common policies on those problems, to foster a sense of community and interdependence among those parishes, and generally to promote in the deanery the whole mission of the Church, pastoral, evangelistic, social and ecumenical;
  • make known and so far as appropriate put into effect any provision made by the Diocesan Synod;
  • consider the business of the Diocesan Synod, and particularly any matters referred to that synod by the General Synod, and to sound parochial opinion whenever they are required or consider it appropriate to do so;
  • raise matters, as the deanery synod consider appropriate, with the Diocesan Synod.
