Bishop David Sheppard and Archbishop Derek Worlock

An unlikely partnership for the Common Good

Together for the Common Good is rooted in the celebrated relationship between church leaders who worked together for the good of their city in a time of social, economic and political division. In Liverpool a generation ago, Anglican Bishop David Sheppard and Roman Catholic Archbishop Derek Worlock forged a twenty year partnership, along with Free Church leaders. They worked together alongside communities, and were involved in many initiatives that benefited the city, establishing a model where churches play a constructive role in society.
