Serving the churches of Kendal and District
Most of the churches in Kendal and the surrounding district are members of Churches Together in Kendal and District, which belongs to Churches Together in Cumbria, which in turn belongs to Churches Together in Britain and Ireland and so on to The World Council of Churches.
There are four national ecumenical organisations, in addition to national denominational organisation.
