Church of England Diocese of Carlisle Waberthwaite

A rather bleak January

20 Jan 2021, 6 a.m.

It was with a heavy heart that the PCC decided that with current restrictions the church would not be open for services. It is still open for anyone who wants to spend a quiet time in a peaceful place.  

January was always going to be a sad time as Gill's retirement gets closer. She will leave the benefice in February and we won't know for some time how or even whether she will be replaced. This is another forum to celebrate what she has meant to us.

Thank you Gill for all the ways you have helped us grow:

by encouraging our vision to restore and safeguard our church building,

by helping us better understand, live and walk our faith,

by highlighting and strengthening the Christian ethos in our school,

in the way you have understood the close relationship between church and community

and, last but not least, for understanding our idiosyncrasies!

Enjoy retirement Gill and David
