Worship in our Churches

Sadly, the lockdown coming into effect from 5th November means that there will be no further Church services until further notice.  Our services will continue online on our YouTube Channel and our latest service will be available to view on this site or you can also access this service by telephone.  Just call 017683 89324..

An interactive service will also be available on Zoom at 10.30 am on November 15th;
please contact David Jones for details of this, see the Ministers page.

We are offering a short time of guided prayer at 12 noon every day from Monday to Friday throughout lockdown.  You can access it via Zoom or Facebook.  It will be simple and accessible for everyone, including those who have never set foot in a church, or have no idea where to start.  It will last around 10 mins or so each day.
You can join in live via Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/groups/534511427253635/
or Zoom; please contact David Jones for details of this, see the Ministers page.

Other News

Funerals
Our Churches are available for small-scale funerals attended by up to 30 close family and friends only. 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.
Weddings

Sadly weddings are not possible during lockdown, except for emergency weddings. We are still taking bookings for future dates, but obviously this is dependent on the rules in place at the time.  Emergency weddings are possible, but will usually take place at home, for example where one of the couple has a terminal illness.  Please do contact us if you have any queries.

Christenings (Baptisms)
Sadly Christenings are not possible at the moment, unless it is an emergency.  Please do contact us if you would like to explore this.
Pastoral Care
We encourage people to be in touch with us, particularly if you are anxious. We are continuing to provide pastoral care, but by telephone and electronic communication instead of face-to-face.  That means that we will not be offering home communion or home visits.  If you would like someone to talk to, or to pray with you, or to offer spiritual guidance, please contact one of the ministry team.
Keeping in touch
We are trying to keep in touch with regular news updates by e-mail.  If you have not already subscribed to our e-news circulation list, please do so by clinking the “keeping in touch” link.  There is also a Heart of Westmorland Mission Community Facebook Page with regular information posted on it, as well as updates on our YouTube channel.
Our prayers are with you all.

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: safeguarding@northwestmorlandchurches.org.uk.
