Whenever our door is Open, you are welcome

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.

Reflecting the return to “normality” we no longer require those attending services to wear a face covering. We are very happy though if you would prefer to wear a face covering.

Safeguarding – St Mary’s commits to the safeguarding of all people who may be vulnerable – children and adults, ensuring their well-being in the life of this church. We seek to act in an inclusive, supportive manner in line with the national safeguarding policies defined by the church of England.

Our Parish Safeguarding Officer is Amanda Fogg who can be contacted on 015395 34341 or at: [email protected]

As a church we are committed to fellowship, care, mutual support and spiritual life.

  • FAITH: “St Mary’s in touch” is a weekly email network for the whole church and parish. It is intended to be a communal network, so everyone can contribute and suggest, offer, ask etc. If you’d like to keep in touch and receive spiritual resources to help you pray and to strengthen you in faith, hope and peace then contact REVD.

    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 at present our worship takes place every Sunday at 9.30 am on first, third, fourth and fifth(depending on month). On the SECOND Sunday of each month our service is at 4.00 pm.
