About Us

St Kentigern's is the parish church of the small town of Aspatria and stands at the heart of the community, within a large and ancient churchyard. The present building in the Gothic style of the 1840s replaces, and incorporates parts of, an earlier Norman building, but there is likely to have been a church on this site since the time of the missionary bishop Kentigern, also known as Mungo, who died in 603. Visitors are always welcome to look round, to offer a prayer, or to worship God with us.
