The Church of the Holy Spirit, Distington

You will be very warmly welcomed to any of our services - we are a small but very friendly group who love new faces. We are involved in village life from the Toddler Group who meet in the Community Centre on a Wednesday morning to our Tea and Chat in the centre of the village on a Wednesday afternoon. Do come and look around the church - it is open on Thursday afternoons between 4.30pm and 5.30pm (the kettle is always on) or take a stroll around the churchyard and enjoy the thousands of spring flowers.

Our parish of Distington is committed to safeguarding children, young people and adults from harm. We follow the House of Bishops guidance and policies and have our own Parish Safeguarding Officer (PSO). Our Diocese of Carlisle’s safeguarding pages contain vital links and information including contacts for the Diocesan Safeguarding Advisor who advises our PSO. If you are concerned that a child or adult has been harmed or may be at risk of harm please contact the PSOJulie Topping or the Diocesan Safeguarding Advisor, Joanna Van Lachterop. If you have immediate concerns about the safety of someone, please contact the police and your local authority’s children or adult social care services.
