Welcome to the 'Western Lakes District Churches' Website
On this site you will information on all the parishes that make up the benefice, not forgetting that we have now become a larger benefice and our sister parishes will also be recorded on this site. These will include the parishes of: Drigg, Bootle, Corney, Whitcham and Whitbeck. The latter four churches constitute the Blackcombe Churches.
The Name of the new benefice is "The Western Lake District Churches" and in the next few days you will be able to access this website by the new name (please do not try just yet!) as well as the current name (www.eskdalebenefice,org.uk). The title of this website, currently Eskdale Benefice, will also change. This 'lead-in' is to give people who have used this website for some years to adjust to the change.
I have set up a page on this site to show the Blackcombe Churches website in an iFrame.
Click on " Blackcombe Churches " in the menu bar on the left side of the page.
We will try and keep up to date with all the service times and locations.
Remember that if you have a query the best person to contact is a member of the Parish concerned, not the vicar who is probably hurrying between appointments.
Please be sure that you will have a warm welcome to any of our church services.
If you have queries about this website please contact me via the Contacts page. If you do spot any inaccuracies (there are bound to be some!) please let me know and I will correct them, if possible.
