14th January 

Dear Friends 

I am writing to you to thank you all very much for your kindness and friendship during my time at St Cuthbert’s. I am retiring now and moving on to a new phase in my life, but I leave with some fond memories of my time in Carlisle.
Sandra and I were delighted with your kind and generous gift of the painting and cheque. We will hang the painting in our new home, and it will be a beautiful reminder of our time in Carlisle.
It has been eleven eventful years with a lot to look back on. The flood in 2015 for one and of course the current pandemic. Throughout these traumatic times I have found my ministry tested but needed and I have tried my best to be there for the parish. It has been made easier with your help and support which I have much appreciated.
Sandra, like me, had enjoyed her time here especially as a member of the choir and serving as Tithe Barn Booking officer. Throughout she has been a loyal support to me and kept me going. 

Both of us are looking forward to retirement and again thank you for everything.
May God be with you all. 

Love
Keith

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"
