Welcome to our website for the churches in the North Westmorland group of Churches. The links above are for the whole group of Churches. Please click on the appropriate image below to load the home page for each church. Please note that this is the only official website for this group of churches.
Worship in our Churches
Please note that, in line with Government regulations, the wearing of face coverings in Church is now mandatory.
We now have a schedule of services for Sundays up to 6 September. You can view the services here. Please note that these are subject to changes in government guidance and any local effects of Covid.
A few pointers for those attending:
- You will be asked to give your name on entering Church, for test and trace purposes. You will also be asked to sanitise as you enter and leave the building.
- There will be no congregational singing.
- There are no children’s activities and we are unable to use Church toys, but children are welcome, under parental supervision and you are welcome to bring your own toys/books etc to keep them amused.
- Wearing a face mask is now mandatory.
- Social distancing will be in place, though you are welcome to sit in your family groups/bubbles.
- Please do not attend if you, or anyone in your family has experienced Covid-19 symptoms in the past 10 days.
People who are at extra risk and the ‘clinically extremely vulnerable’ should be advised that there is an increased risk of attending public worship, but the decision to attend is yours. We will ensure that the ’normal’ risks of infection are mitigated as far as possible within government guidelines.
A full statement of our Health & Safety procedures, along with copies of our Risk Assessment and our Test & Trace Data Proction policy can be viewed on our Health & Safety pages.
Our YouTube Services will continue as usual
We will continue to provide weekly acts of worship on Sundays and Wednesdays, to supplement our live worship and for those who cannot attend personally.
Celebrating the First Decade
Below is a personal message from The Revd Stewart Fyfe on the 10th anniversary of his installation in our parishes.
Our Churches are available for small-scale funerals attended by up to 30 guests. No singing is possible at the moment. For people unable to attend, we are happy to allow you to video the service. Please do contact us if you would like to explore this.
Keeping in touch
Promoting a Safer Church
We are committed to ensuring that this is a safe place for everyone and the welfare of children, young people and vulnerable adults is an absolute priority in the North Westmorland Churches. Safeguarding is God’s love in action and we work hard to make our churches safe and secure places where abuse and mistreatment of others will not be tolerated. We abide by the Carlisle Diocese Safeguarding Policy.
Our Safeguarding Co-ordinator, responsible for all the North Westmorland Churches is Sarah Banks. Tel: 01931 712801, email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
