St Mary's Church lies in the centre of a large rural parish in the north of the Brampton Deanery and is blessed with glorious views of the Pennines and the Lake District. It holds regular services, alternating each week with St Cuthbert's, Bewcastle, with a United Service held once a month in one of the four churches in the Benefice. The Church is well supported by the local community and organises two fairs and other events each year.
