Visiting the Church
In a busy world, Kendal Parish Church provides a perfect setting for quiet reflection and prayer, and a fascinating place to visit.
As the gateway to the Lake District, the ‘auld grey town’ of Kendal attracts many tourists and we are glad to welcome thousands of visitors each year to Kendal Parish Church. Everyone who comes is impressed and inspired by the building’s beauty and by our long history of Christian worship. We hope that you too will pay us a visit.
The church is open 10.00am to 4.00pm, Monday to Saturday.
The church office is open 9.00am-12.00noon, Monday to Friday.
We have a team of welcomers who volunteer on a rota basis (although not necessarily 100% of the time we are open). They are always happy to answer any questions you might have.
If you come by car, there is a public car park next to the church. There is more parking at Abbot Hall Art Gallery and the Museum of Lakeland Life which are next door.

We are part of the Greater Churches Network.
The group was founded in 1991 as an informal association of non-cathedral churches which fulfil a role which is additional to that of a normal parish church. To find out more about other churches in the network, please click on the logo to the left.
