St John's, Waberthwaite

The welcome at St John's is warm and friendly. Our small congregation worship together every other week using the Common Worship Communion Service and we often sing quite joyfully, unaccompanied. Our services last about an hour.

In our churchyard stand the shaft of a Celtic cross, whose intricate design reminds us that Christ has been worshipped at this estuary ford since at least the seventh century. We are a community of vision with existing plans for the development of this site which will enable it to continue being a place where people encounter God for many generations to come.

Can you help us fund the major repairs we need?
