Holy Week

Holy week is a time of reflection and a time of celebration as we come together as many churches around Cockermouth to remember the events leading up to death of Jesus on the cross.

Download our Holy Week Guide and join us at one or more of our events.

Welcome to the Cockermouth Area Team of churches, a group of four churches in north Cumbria centred around the communities of Cockermouth, Great Broughton, Bridekirk, Tallentire, Dovenby, Belle Vue and Papcastle.

Living locally, visiting friend or on holiday, you will find a warm welcome at all of our churches.

For more information about our activities and events have a look at our weekly Welcome Sheet.

Upcoming Events

Good Friday Walk of Witness

Join us as we journey through Jesus’ last hours to his crucifixion. We remember how he was betrayed, abused, beaten, tortured, and cruelly murdered. And all for Love’s sake. The Way of Sorrow becomes for us the Way of Life. Our ‘One Friday’ Walk of Witness tells the story of Good Friday through drama, words and song.
