Carol Singing Two lots of carol singing on Saturday 16th December, and some very hoarse voices, firstly outside 106 in the morning and at the Birdcage in the afternoon. Lots of appreciation from passers by and plenty of donations for Manna House.

The other sing was at Oxenholme Railway station.

Good Friday Walk of Witness 2023 took place on a beautiful sunny day, with about 100 Christains taking part. It started with a service at Stricklandgate Methodist Church. The Walk proceded along Stricklandgate and Highgate to Kendal Parish Church for a final act of worship. There were stops at the Market Place, the Birdcage and 106 for short acts of worship.

Easter Sunday sunrise service 6.45am was celebrated at Kendal Castle

The Way is the free online newspaper of the Church in Cumbria. It is published three times a year - spring, summer and winter - with copies being distributed digitally and churches across the county encouraged to share stories. Content majors on how God is moving in people's lives throughout Cumbria. The newspaper is inter-denominational with people actively encouraged to distribute it as widely as possible.

King's food bank is an initative to provide food for those without any - many local churches are collecting tins and other food - but please not too many baked beans or pasta!
