             Welcome

 

 

St. James' Church Staveley, St. Anne's Church Ings and St. Cuthbert's Church Kentmere are situated between Kendal and Windermere in the beautiful Lake District National Park.
 

We are part of the Church of England and welcome people of all denominations and backgrounds to join us for worship, fellowship or to enjoy the peace and tranquillity of our church buildings.

We are three congregations but one Church family seeking to grow as disciples of Jesus and offering opportunities for others to discover more of God's love for them and of his purposes for their lives.

Creator God,
We give you thanks for all your blessings,
that you are truly for all,
and that all is for you.

We give you thanks that you call us
to be your disciples
and to live as witnesses of your good news.
