Our church tradition is ‘middle-of-the-road’; vestments are worn for all services and there is a robed choir under the direction of the organist and choirmaster.

Other regular services at St Paul’s include a Civic Service on Mayoral Sunday; Harvest Festival (2015) followed by a Parish Lunch and Auction of Harvest goods; All Souls Service; and a Remembrance Day service for the town. The Patronal Festival is celebrated jointly with St Paul’s, Lindale, followed by lunch. There is a full series of services through Holy Week to Easter Day (see photos for Easter 2018). At Christmas, there is traditionally a Christingle and Crib Service on Christmas Eve, and a Midnight Eucharist.  Services for the young families in 2016 have included special events at Candlemas and Palm Sunday.  The next one is planned for harvest.

A recent addition has been a special afternoon service at the Fell Church for those people who receive Communion each month in their own homes because they are unable to get to church.  However, three times a year - Christmas, Easter and in the summer - transport is arranged to bring them to the Fell Church for a simple service, followed by afternoon tea.


In the summer edition of The Way, Bishop Robert (of Penrith) gives us three web sites that explore 'thin places' in different ways.

www.embody.co.uk/blog/post/thin_places - a variety of contributions in which people explain where God has broken through or been experienced as especially close

www.pray-as-you-go.org is a free daily podcast produced by British Jesuits and other experts in the spirituality of St Ignatius of Loyola - designed for ordinary people and intended to be used as part of a regular day

www.mysticchrist.co.uk - a community site offering insights into spirituality and creation from the Christian tradition.  It offers helpful resources, prayers and insights for connecting with nature and letting God connect with us.
