Church of England Diocese of Carlisle St. Thomas, Crosscrake

About Us

We are a small friendly church for all ages; families, single people, old and young. We are always pleased to welcome new people and those on holiday. We invite you to come and visit the Church or even better to join us for one of our services or events. 

 The present Crosscrake Church was rebuilt in 1874, designed by the Lancaster firm of Paley & Austin, who had designed built the large house at Sedgwick for the Wakefield family a few years previously . A chapel, founded by Anselm de Furness had existed on the site from as early as 1190. The Church sits in the attractive undulating 'Drumlin country' south of Kendal and in the Spring the churchyard is full of wild daffodils.

Many changes have taken place to the building over the years including recent adaptations to make it more sustainable and accessible with level access, toilets, an area for socializing and making refreshments, better lighting and sound system and more comfortable provision for weekday activities.
