Welcome toUlverston Parish Church
My name is
and I’m the Vicar of UPC. Thank you for visiting us.
Our vision is to be the kind of church where we can encounter God, learn how to follow Jesus together, and make a positive difference to our community and the world we live in.
I hope you can find what you’re looking for, but if you have any questions, please get in touch.
We hope to see you soon.

SERVICES AT THE PARISH CHURCH
Sunday 8:30 Holy Communion/Morning Prayer
A quieter, more traditional service with space for reflection and prayer. This service alternates between Morning Prayer on the first and third Sundays and Holy Communion on the second, fourth and fifth Sundays.
Sunday 10:30 Family Service
A great service for our church family, guests and visitors, with a mix of modern and traditional worship and relevant Bible teaching. If you have children, we have lots for them to do, just ask a member of our welcome team for more information about the children’s groups.
Sunday 18:30 Café Church
More informal than a normal church service. Expect a warm welcome, good coffee and cake, as well as modern worship, interactive teaching and prayer.
Thursday 10:00 Midweek Communion
Communion with a hymn and a short talk, with refreshments afterwards. The third Thursday of each month is a healing service where you can receive prayer for healing.
SERVICES AT ST JOHN'S OSMOTHERLEY
St. John’s Church is the ‘daughter’ church in the Parish of Ulverston and is in a beautiful rural setting on the ‘Cumbria Way’ with sheep farming all around.
Sunday Services are normally held at 3.00 pm.
Second Sunday: Holy Communion
Fourth Sunday: Choral Evensong
The traditional Book of Common Prayer is regularly used for both services, which are accompanied by a robed choir.
