    Important Notice

    Dear friends,

    The Wardens, Church Council and myself have taken the decision to suspend public worship with immediate effect.

    This decision has been made with a large measure of sadness and regret, but we believe that the right course of action due to increasing Covid-19 levels in our community.

    The Church Council will review the situation on Monday 1st February.

    A Sunday Service will continue to be available online, on our Facebook page (There is a link below).

    St. James' will continue to be open each day from 9am till 4pm for private prayer. I am also still opening up St. Nicholas' for private prayer on Wednesdays from 10am till 12noon.

    Our Zoom bible studies start on Tuesday 12th January (details below).

    Finally, please keep safe and look after one another in a safe way.

    Should you need me please do not hesitate to contact me.

    Love and Prayers

    The Legal bit...

    “The Priest in Charge and the Parochial Church Council of The Parish of Whitehaven acting jointly authorise dispensing with the reading of Morning and Evening Prayer as required by Canon B 11 and the celebration of the Holy Communion as required by Canon B 14 on the following occasions: 

    From 10th January up to and including the 31st January 2021.

    The reason for the dispensation is that in the light of the Government’s guidance on preventing the spread of Coronavirus, there is no church in the benefice which can be used safely for public worship on those occasions.” 

    This will be reviewed on Monday 1st February 2021.

    Coronavirus - Cumbrian Prayer

    Loving God, as your Son healed the sick
    And brought good news to the needy
    Be with us this day.
    Loving Jesus as you taught us to
    'Do unto others as you would have them do to you'
    Be with all the medical staff this day.
    Loving spirit, your gift is healing,
    Bring your healing fire to our homes, our hospitals and our county,
    But most of all, be with us this day. Amen

    The Cumbria Ecumenical Spirituality Group.
