St Olaf's Church, Wasdale Head, Cumbria
Welcome to Wasdale Head and England’s smallest parish church. Wasdale Head is the birthplace of English rock climbing and many of England’s finest fells are in the parish – among them Great Gable, Pillar and the highest - Scafell Pike, so is its deepest lake, Wastwater, and they create a montage that many regard as one of Britain’s finest views.
Amongst these wonders of God’s creation sits the little church of St Olaf’s – the parish church of Wasdale Head. The site has been the base of the Christian Community here for over 1000 years - though much of the present building only dates from circa 1550. St Olaf's can quite accurately be described as a little stable, with pews, ancient beams and a flagstone floor - a perfect place to worship God.
Faith in the Fells - We hold services in St Olaf's on the 2nd and 4th Sundays of each month throughout the year, also on Easter Day and Christmas Day at the same time. Our services in June are Sunday 13th June - Morning Praise at 11am, and Sunday 27th June - Songs of Praise 11am - this service may have to be re-titled once we hear the Government's 'roadmap' announcement of 14th June!
St Olaf's is open each day from around 9am till 5pm.
Each year we welcome visitors from all over the world. With only a track and a footpath leading to the church, most are walkers or climbers on their way to and from some of England's finest fells. Many call in for quiet moments of prayer or meditation, and enjoy the silence amidst the grandeur and permanence of God's creation. St Olaf's simplicity and smallness is what people love.
