Our local ecumenical covenant
Kirkby Lonsdale is notable for the very close links between our different churches. The covenant signed by the clergy to emphasise those links is available as a PDF file here.
If you wish to contact us please email to email@example.com. If you have prayer requests please email them to firstname.lastname@example.org and they will be brought to the next daily Morning Prayer. You may also contact our Parish Manager, Rachael Pelham, at email@example.com.
