Welcome to the Keswick and Cockermouth Methodist Circuit
In this part of the lovely Cumbrian Lake District, our Circuit lies between Cockermouth and Keswick and includes the outlining villages along the A66, taking in Bassenthwaite in the north and extending southwards from Keswick into the Borrowdale valley. There are churches at Cockermouth, Keswick, Brigham, Bassenthwaite and Grange in Borrowdale.
Our churches seek to be welcoming - open to everyone whatever their age, race, gender, sexuality or social circumstances. The majority of our churches have easy access, 'loop' systems for those with hearing difficulties and large print available for those with visual impairment.
We are a tourist area and are pleased to welcome those who are visiting our towns and villages to join us for worship at one of our churches or chapels. Do make yourself known to us and take our greetings with you to your home church when you return.
We affirm that the Methodist Church exists to:
- increase awareness of God's presence and to celebrate God's love;
- help people to grow and learn as Christians through mutual support and care;
- be a good neighbour to people in need and to challenge injustice;
- make more followers of Jesus Christ.
As Christians, we seek to work as individual churches, and with other churches and community groups, to fulfil the above purposes both locally and in the wider world, through worship, learning, caring, service and evangelism.
You will be warmly welcomed, either as a visitor or if you have moved into the area, in any of our churches, details of which can be found on the web site.
We look forward to meeting you.
