St Cuthbert’s has been an open church for a long time and is popular with visitors. Unfortunately, some visitors do not respect this and there have been some instances in recent weeks which have meant we are now, following advice from the police, temporarily closing the church when not being used for services, baptisms and weddings.
The Church will reopen on 1st July at lunch time until 4.00pm and then from Monday to Saturday from 10.00am untl 4.00pm
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"
