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

Conversations with Christians are one of the most important influences in bringing people to faith. This course will inspire you to share your faith and will give you practical suggestions to help you to be natural and relevant as you talk about Jesus with the people you meet.
There are six encouraging, video-based sessions with short films, inspirational, short testimonies, real-life examples from people who are talking Jesus, and a short, easy-to-follow course book.
The course is being held at St Bridget's Bridekirk on the following Sundays, 4pm till 5:30pm, September 29, October 6,13, November 3,10,24

Alpha is a series of sessions exploring the Christian faith. Each talk looks at a different question around faith and is designed to create conversation. Alpha is run all around the globe, and everyone's welcome. It runs in cafés, churches, universities, homes—you name it. No two Alphas look the same, but generally they have three key things in common: food, a talk and good conversation.
We are running an Alpha Course based at Christ Church Cockermouth starting on the 8th January 2020

We are excited to be members of the developing Grasmoor Mission Community of 14 congregations sharing and exploring together our Christian faith with each other and the communities around the Derwent and Cocker rivers in North Cumbria.
North Lakes Food Bank

The welfare of children, young people and vulnerable adults is an absolute priority for us. Safeguarding shows God's love in action and in churches demonstrates safety and security, where abuse and mistreatment of others is not tolerated.
