Welcome to St George’s Parish Church, Castle Street, Kendal

At St George’s Church we aim to reach out to God in worship and to each other in fellowship. We hope you will find us a friendly and inclusive church and we would be delighted to meet you at any of our services or activities.

We are also part of an exciting new mission across Cumbria, in partnership with other denominations, called God for All. The aim of God for All is that by 2020 all the people of Cumbria, of all ages and backgrounds, will have had an opportunity to discover more of God and God’s purpose for their lives. You can read more about God for All and stories about local Christian people’s lives and faith by clicking here.

Please take the time to read more about Worship & Services, Baptisms, Weddings & Funerals, Facilities for Hire, Activities, Prayer Station and our latest news.

You can also read more about our church and its history, plus meet some of the people who lead our church.

We'd be delighted to answer any of your questions. Feel free to contact us or if you'd rather, you can always pop into the Church Office – open Monday to Thursday from 9.30am to 11.30am.
