Welcome to Penrith Parish (St Andrew's and Christ Church.
We look forward to welcoming everyone to our worship and to other events in the life of the church community.
Penrith is a growing market town sitting on the NE edge of the Lake District National Park, at the M6 J40 and on the West Coast mainline. Penrith and the Eden Valley is a great place to live and visit. It is an ideal base for holidays, close to 'the Lakes' but without the very crowed tourist footfall familiar to visitors to the National Park.
St Andrew's and Christ Church is a worshipping, active Christian community, as part of Churches Together in Penrith. You will find a warm welcome at any of our local churches.
Please do get in touch if you would like any further details or additional information.
(Rev David Sargent, Penrith Team Rector)
