Getting here

Brough Church is a haven of peace, tranquillity and prayer, remarked on many, many times in our visitors book.

Parts of it dates from the 12th century, but it has been rebuilt, ransacked, rebuilt again and added to over the centuries to become the church we love and enjoy worshipping in. this is one of the few churches in the land where the bride actually does walk up the aisle to her wedding due to our gently sloping nave!

We love to receive visitors and there is lots more information about the building available in the church. There is also a comprehensive display about the area's history in the church. We can be found just off the A685 about 200yards south of the A66 junction and therefore a convenient stop halfway between Scotch Corner and Penrith. Just follow the tourist signs to Brough Castle, park in the square and go left at the end. The church is normally open between 10am and 4pm (or dusk if that is earlier).

A leaflet giving details of a circular drive/cycle ride visiting other churches in the area (including Stainmore St. Stephen) is available.

SERVICES


Sunday services are normally at 10.00am.

But we also have a new special monthly evening service on the 4th Sunday at 7.00pm. It is called

SUNDAY AT 7

and has three purposes:

1. RENEWAL

The worship is a mixture of joyful or more reflective worship using songs from the top 100 in the UK and some inspiring older hymns. We shall use music which helps us to focus on God's presence in majesty and love.  Sometimes the worship will be more reflective and include silence. Such worship can help to renew our spiritual lives.

2. REVIVAL
Revivals are powerful movements of the Holy Spirit which have happened in the past and are happening in some places in the world today. They bring many people to faith in Christ. Our increasingly godless UK desperately needs Revival. We shall be giving inspiring teaching about Revival and praying for us to experience it in the Eden Valley.

3. RETURN
All of this will be with the perspective that Jesus is coming back which is a neglected area of Christian teaching (although some people teach extreme ideas about it, which we shall avoid). We need to live in the light of the fact that we shall all stand before Jesus one day and much-needed teaching will be given on this subject.
