Welcome to St Michael's and St Mark's Carlisle

Services are back in Church!

We are delighted that services are now taking place in church - 9.30am in St Michael's and 11.00am in St Mark's. We hope to see you there! 

COVID restrictions remain in place. Please wear a face mask at all times whilst in church and for now, the congregation are not permitted to sing - singing will be led by a couple of singers at the front. Sadly it is not possible to meet for coffee after the service at the moment. However, we enjoy ending the St Michael's service by all singing our final song together outside

On Sunday 20th June there will be joint service at 10.00am in St Michael's, followed by our Annual Parish Meeting (there will not be a service at St Mark's on that day).

The St Michael's services are being recorded and are available a short while later on our Facebook page.

You do not need to have a Facebook account in order to access the videos. If you watch online we do pray that you find the online services to be a means of grace for you to know God’s pleasure, peace and grace as you worship Him! The services will remain available online.

Sunday Club meet during the St Michael's service - if you wish your children to attend, please contact the parish office in advance to book them in.

A warm and friendly welcome awaits you at church; whether you are someone wanting to explore Christianity for the first time, someone who has been following Jesus for many years or someone in between. We use both modern and more traditional liturgy and a mixture of modern worship songs and older hymns. We are committed to teaching based on the Bible, personal Christian growth and allowing the Holy Spirit to work in our lives. Children are an important part of our congregations, we employ a children’s and young people’s worker and run thriving activities for all ages. We have been influenced by movements such as Alpha, Spring Harvest and New Wine. We affirm the ministry of women across the life of the church.

The parish of St Michael’s Stanwix with St Mark’s Belah serves the area of Carlisle immediately to the north of the River Eden including Stanwix, Belah, Etterby, St Ann’s, Stainton and Rickerby. We are part of the Carlisle Diocese in the Church of England.

The two congregations are part of the same parish and we do lots of things together whilst maintaining distinct characteristics.
