An invitation to join us
The parish church of the Holy Trinity Kendal has a long and distinguished history of worship and outreach to the people of Kendal and to visitors from further afield. There has been a church on this site for over 1,200 years, and the parish is mentioned in Domesday Book. The present building has stood since 1201. It has been extended and restored over the centuries as need arose. Today we continue to respond to need, as we seek to be a welcoming Christian community serving the people of Kendal. Here prayer is offered to the worship of God, here music is sung to His glory and His word is proclaimed. Here the people of Kendal gather on civic and other important occasions. Here all may pause and spend time in private prayer or reflection on eight centuries of Christian witness.
Here by God’s grace and with the help of all who share our vision of mission we shall sustain our witness in our ninth century. If you care for the future of this historic church or if you have personal links to Holy Trinity or to Kendal more generally, we invite you to join the association of Friends of Kendal Parish Church.
How do the Friends Help?
The Friends raise funds to help the parish maintain its witness and engagement with the wider community of Kendal and to assist with the maintenance of the fabric of the church, interior decoration and furnishings.

The Friends’ Prayer
God our Father, we pray for the Parish Church of Holy Trinity Kendal.
We thank you for the witness that it has borne to the truth of the Gospel across the centuries.
We acknowledge with gratitude the labours of those who built it and the dedication of those who have maintained it and made it a building worthy of its purpose.
We pray that in our day this Church may continue faithful in worship, active in mission and loving in outreach.
Lord, we ask also for your blessing on the Friends of Holy Trinity. Strengthen us as we seek to give our support, and grant to us all an assurance of the grace of the Lord Jesus Christ, the love of God and the fellowship of the Holy Spirit. Amen.
