On Thursday 14th October, we will be having a retreat day for the Furness Mission Community from 10am to 4pm at The Kepplewray Centre. This will be an opportunity for praying, planning and some ‘blue sky thinking’ as the Mission Community comes into being. Lunch will be provided.

We are looking for two members of UPC to join Madi Simpson, Ruth Hutchings and Alan Bing at the day, so that the whole church family is represented. Please contact one of us in you are interested. 

Congratulations to Frank Musker on receiving the Royal Patron’s Award for his voluntary work with the Abbeyfield Society. Prince Charles is the Patron of the Society.

Calling all Makers

We had a very successful Christmas Season Makers Market last year. The Dickensian Festival will be our kick off for this season.

Please chat with, or bring your home made items to Linda Polley, Sue McKenzie or Kristen O’Brien.



This teaching day is part of our programme for ‘Growing Disciples’. Previous days have looked at The Gospel, The Bible, Prayer,Mission, The Church, The Kingdom of God, Evangelism, The Sermon of the Mount, The Old Testament, What is Discipleship?, Christian Lifestyle, What is Human? and What is Church History? This year Bishop James will continue the ‘What is…….?’ series with an in depth look at What is Glory?

The aim is to build confidence in the Christian faith, and it is intended to complement the teaching that already goes on so faithfully in our Parishes and Deaneries.
