The Lighthouse Choir performed at the new Royal Liverpool Hospital last week as it received faith leaders to bless the new hospital before welcoming patients this month.
The event, led by the hospital chaplaincy, was attended by representatives from the Church of England, Greek Orthodox, Islamic, Jewish, Roman Catholic and Sikh communities, along with senior NHS leaders, council representatives and university leaders. Reverend Maggie Johnstone, Chaplaincy Team Leader at Liverpool University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust, said: “It was a joyous occasion and reflected the sense of togetherness and community, which is a reflection of the Liverpool City Region. The city has waited a long time for this hospital and it doesn’t disappoint. The facilities look amazing and it was a privilege to join faith leaders to bless the hospital before it is occupied by patients and staff.” The choir have more performances in the pipeline and future dates for concerts open to the public will be published on the Lighthouse website and social media accounts.
