6th March

It is with great sadness that we announce the death of The Venerable Alan Davis who was our vicar before Richard Pratt. Alan died on Wednesday in hospital.

Alan was a very popular and much respected vicar of St Cuthbert's. He and Fran, his wife, made a huge contribution by launching our French connection with the church of St Barthelemy near Angers, France; Anglican and Roman Catholic Churches which have formed a wonderful community. An exchange which has lasted 25 years! The slate plaque which they presented to us, is back in its rightful place in our church entrance hall.
Alan left us to become Archdeacon of West Cumberland. A role which Richard stepped into when Alan retired to Atherstone.
Alan and Fran continued to support our French Exchange and on occasion went with us after he retired.
God bless you Alan and Rest in Peace

Sorry the Church is closed for private prayer

Friday Coffee mornings are cancelled until further notice



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 from 10.00 am to 4.00 pm (see above). Our motto is: "Christian Hospitality"
