About the app

Discover Liverpool's multi-faith history

With the Footsteps of Faith app, it's easy to discover a heritage trail of Liverpool's religious history:

  • Using our map of local buildings, you can easily find places to visit near your current location, as well as photos, background information and audio interviews relevant to that building's religion.
  • You can also scroll through a timeline of events in Liverpool's history, from 4000BC to the present day!


We'll be making regular updates to the app. Forthcoming updates include:

  • Corrections/additions to text and images within the app

Augmented Reality

Using the Footsteps of Faith app you can view some of Liverpool's iconic religious buildings in 3D via Augmented Reality.

Here's how it works:

  1. Print out one of the images below (these are referred to as "markers")
  2. Load the Footsteps of Faith app, tap the Augmented Reality menu option then tap on the "Got it" button to load the camera view
  3. Place the marker in a well-lit area and point your phone camera at it - a building should appear!
  4. Each marker is tied to a different building. Try them all!
