Welcome to

Ulverston Parish Church




My name is

Alan Bing

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.
