Every 6 years churches are required to produce a new Electoral Roll. All those on the current roll should re-apply and people not on the roll are invited to join. Being on the Electoral Roll enables you to fully participate in the life of the church, vote at the Annual Meeting and demonstrate commitment to the church. We would encourage all who are eligible to sign up. Forms and pens will be available at all services, and we will contact those who are part of the church family but currently unable to attend church. See Ian Jones for more details.


Tips and support for the most difficult job in the world! Thursday mornings at 9am in the Parish Centre. Speak to Hannah Fishwick or John McKenzie for more details.


We would like to remind parents and carers that children are their responsibility after the 10.30 Sunday service, whether in church or outside.


Churches Together in Ulverston have two events planned on April 20 to mark Easter weekend:
