About Us

At the foundation stone laying in 1913 the bishop of Carlisle Rt Revd J W Diggle said " it is going to be a little gem,as I know from the plans I have seen"

All Saints was the last village church to be built in the diocese a good plain well-proportioned building of Lazonby sandstone. 

Those who have come to church here Sunday by Sunday over the years have handed to us a simple,beautiful building in which to worship God.We owe them a great debt.

We live in a time when village churches and village schools are under threat .We are fortunate that we still have our church and our Church of England school in Calthwaite. 

The church has made a distinctive contribution to the life of the village during the past 100 years ,amply fulfilling the faith and resolve of all those people who worked hard to enable it to be built.

We have a family Holy Communion  services on the third Sunday of the month and a lay led morning worship on the 1st Sunday both services have a time of fellowship at the end with coffee and refreshments.We have a "Rainbow Club"  for primary age children held on the first Saturday of the month held in school at 3.00pm.
