About Us

St Cuthbert's Kirklinton is one of four churches in the benefice of Bewcastle, Stapleton and Kirklinton with Hethersgill. Sunday services alternate around the benefice, which comprises Bewcastle, Stapleton, Kirklinton and Hethersgill churches. We have a small, friendly congregation, deeply embedded in the local farming community and open to all. You will find a warm welcome and a friendly face when you visit.

Together with St Mary's Hethersgill we hold a Big Breakfast at Hethersgill Hall on the last Sunday of January, a Summer Fair, a Harvest Lunch on the last Sunday of September, and a Christmas Fair each year.
