To serve the community of Allithwaite, Cumbria

At St Mary’s we are a church family for all ages. Our purpose is to reflect the light of God’s love into the heart of our community.

Mothering Sunday – Sunday 31st March, our service will be at a different time / place: 10.00 a.m. at St John’s Flookburgh.   It will be a special United Service for Mothering Sunday, joining the two congregations of St Mary’s Allithwaite and St John’s Flookburgh.

The Sunday Club children will be making and giving out bunches of flowers.
Revd Amiel Osmaston will lead and preach.

Put it in your diary, and Do come!

(Note – there will be no service in St Mary’s church that Sunday).

Team Boundary Prayer Walks

During Lent there will be a series of Prayer Walks around the Team Boundary.  These will take place on 5 Saturdays commencing 16th March and on Tuesday 26th March.  More details are available on the calendar or by e-mail from the church contact.

We offer services from the traditional through to the informal. Have a look at our Worship page to see which one might be for you.

We offer a Sunday School every week during the 10.45 morning service.





The church stands proudly on the land known as Little Templand at the highest point of the parish of St Mary, Allithwaite.

The church commands a fine view over the Kent estuary and was built together with the old vicarage, the school and the schoolhouse from the proceeds of the will of Mary Winfield Lambert, a local landowner who lived first at Abbot Hall, Kents Bank, and then at Boarbank Hall.

She died in 1857 but the buildings (at a total cost of £6,000) were not erected until 1864.

We welcome new parishioners or visitors to the area with open arms. Our worship takes place every Sunday at 8.00am and 10.45am
