History and General Description
The Church stands not east-west but square to the Roman Road north through Carlisle (the A6, in town Blackfriars St). It is therefore of early foundation, perhaps before St Cuthbert's visit to Carlisle in 685. The present Church, probably the fourth on the site, dates from 1778.
It has a unique moving pulpit, a fourteenth century window, a window commemorating our hospitality to a Latvian Lutheran congregation, and a very attractive series of windows depicting the life of St Cuthbert. It is open every day during daylight hours. Our motto is: "Christian Hospitality"
The Carlisle Central methodist Hall closed in 2005 but wished to maintain a presence in the city. St Cuthberts offered them the Tithe Barn as a place of worship and a Decree was signed on the 1st November 2005.
We have a joint church council to discuss matters relating to both Anglican and methodist issues. Social events are organised so that both denominations are involved in all aspects of church life but still maintaining their traditional identities.
