Vestry repairs

We have launched an urgent appeal for financial help in making essential repairs to the vestry of St James Church Burton-in-Kendal. For further information about the repair work needed and to make a gift please go to our Vestry Repairs web page. We will keep you updated on the progress of fundraising with our fundraising thermometer.

Burton-in-Kendal Sign
Holme Sign

As the minister of the parishes of Burton and Holme, welcome to our website! I hope that I will get the chance to greet you personally either in the villages or at one of the churches.

We aim to be friendly church families who make it easy for new people to join us or just to come along and see what we are about.

We remember that the church buildings in Burton and Holme were built to be places of worship for everyone in the villages.

Whether you’ve just arrived or have lived here for years you will be very welcome at any of our services, groups or events.

If you’ve got questions or you’d like to talk to me then do get in touch; I’m not too busy to phone you or visit you.
