Lent Courses
This year we studied the new York Course. There was a followup "bring and share" meal at KURC Highgte on Friday April 28th which was enjoyed by all attended

Walk of Witness - Good Friday 2017
After a moving service at Stricklandgate Methodist church the walk went through the town centre to Kendal Parish Church. A large number of people from all denominations followed the Cross and the banner, stopping to sing and pray inside the Westmorland Centre and at the "Bird cage". 

Easter Day sunrise service at Kendal Castle 2017
The sky was clear, the birds were singing and the sun was rising as 56 people, led by Angela Whittaker, greeted Easter with a joyous service. We ended by turning outwards and proclaiming to the town "The Lord is risen. Alleluia". 

Town Chaplains
Kendal now has four Town Chaplains; Margaret, Georgina, David and Hazel. Do speak to them if you see them round the town.

Westmorland Show
The 2016 show took place in mixed weather,and the Rest Tent was used by lots of people. Becausse the cost does not justify the perceived advantages it has been decided to forego a separate tent, but hopefully still have a presence.

King's food bank is now involved with providing food for those who suffered in the floods. It had a good float in the Torchlight Procession. It is an initative to provide food for those without any; many local churches collecting tins and are other food - but please not too many baked beans  or pasta!
