From 25th July our services will change:

9am Service

Will use books and we will have a hymn at the start of the service, continuing in the church building and will not be live streamed.

10.30am Service

Will be back in the church building and live streamed through Facebook for those unable to attend. We will have a live band and the music will be predominantly contemporary. Junior Church will be running during the 10.30am service apart from when it is Explore Together, which will be on 2nd Sunday of the month.
Refreshments will be served after the 10.30am service.


As we go back into church for the 10.30 service, we want to make people as welcome as possible. If you would like to be part of the welcome team or help with refreshments after the service, please speak to Jill Shephard or John McKenzie.

How DID they do that… in 1866?

Heritage Open Days is England’s largest festival of history and culture, bringing together over 2,000 local people and organisations, and thousands of volunteers. Every year in September, places across the country throw open their doors to celebrate their heritage, community and history. This year, Ulverston Parish Church is planning to share in the fun.

On Saturday September 18th join us for “How DID they do that… in 1866?” Our Heritage Day will be set at the completion of UPC’s most extensive renovation and will include displays and talks by heritage craftspeople, with an opportunity for visitors to get hands on! There will be children’s activities, period costumes for dressing up, virtual bellringing and refreshments.

This is a great opportunity for UPC to share our history with our community. To make it happen and to extend a warm welcome to our visitors, we will need willing hands who could spare an hour or two on the day, also contributions of cakes/scones etc.
Please put the date in your diary and let us know if you are able to help. Watch out for more details in the coming weeks. Many thanks Sue McKenzie, Helen Huck and Kristen O’Brien.
