About Us

The Mission Church is set in the middle of the village of Kirkland, about 1 mile from the B5086 Cockermouth to Egremont road near the village of Rowrah.

The sanctuary can be screened off to provide a small hall for community activities during the week. There are kitchen and (disabled access) toilet facilities plus a side room for meetings and childrens activities.

The monthly pattern of worship is as follows:

1st Sunday:    11.00 am Cafe Church (Ocasionally All Age Worship)

2nd Sunday:   11.00 am Holy Communion (Common Worship)

3rd Sunday:    11.00 am Service of the Word (Methodist)

(On the 1st and 3rd Sunday in the month 9 a.m. Holy Communion is at St Mary's Ennerdale; On 2nd and 4th Sundays 9 a.m. Holy Communion is at St Michael's Lamplugh.  If there is a 5th Sunday in the month, a Methodist communion service (but using Anglican wine) is held at one of the churches at 11 a.m.)
