After careful and prayerful consideration the PCCs of each church have made the following arrangements for worship in our churches over the next few weeks.

There will be no service in the following churches until further notice:
St. James’ Staveley
                                           St. Martin’s Bowness
                                         St. Cuthbert’s Kentmere
                                        Jesus Church Troutbeck

There will be an online Zoom service live-streamed onto Facebook and the homepage of this website at 11.00 a.m.
Please contact us for the zoom codes
The order of service can be downloaded here

Sunday 10th January - St. Anne's Ings - Holy Communion 11am

Sunday 17th January - St. Anne's Ings - Morning Service 11am
St. Mary's Windermere - Morning Service 11am

We will keep this all under continual review in case of changing circumstances, but in any event we will review the situation in the week beginning 7th February so as to be able (we hope) to announce by Sunday 14th February what will be happening in the following week (which includes Ash Wednesday).

Please can we request that if your regular church is not open you don’t swap to one of the others that is open, otherwise we risk an overload of numbers.

Bishop James said in his letter to clergy that we "should not feel pressurised to open church buildings at this time if you feel a safer option would be to offer digital and online services.” By the same token, if you are personally concerned about the risks involved, you should not feel under any pressure to attend your usual church just because it is open.



Please note the wearing of face coverings for worship is mandatory.

Please be aware that due to COVID-19 restrictions we can only accommodate a reduced number of worshippers at one time.

Please do not be offended if we cannot admit you to the service.


If you are planning to attend please contact
Revd Shanthi Thompson 01539 821267
or Revd James Richards 015394 43063

 

Some of our church buildings are now open for private prayer by arrangement.

If you'd like to spend some time in St James', Mary's or Jesus Church please contact
In order to keep you and our community safe we are only permitted to allow individuals or people from one household or bubble to visit at the same item.

Keep us, good Lord, under the shadow of your mercy

in this time of uncertainty and distress.
Sustain and support the anxious and fearful,
and lift up all who are brought low;
that we may rejoice in your comfort
knowing that nothing can separate us from your love
in Christ Jesus our Lord.
Amen
