Solway Deanery Profile
The great diversity of this deanery is also one of it's greatest challenges from the town of Workington to the many small villages. From farming to football, retail to rugby from fishing to factories it can all be found here in this area of the diocese.
We have the Solway Firth and within a few miles the majesty of the Lake District hills. It is often said that the people of our area are reticent about showing their feelings or talking about what God means in their lives, this maybe because many are in awe of the wonder of God they see all about them as they go about their daily lives. The beauty the ruggedness the threat of land sea and hills in the seasons. Many have also been taught from an early age not to talk about themselves, but to let their actions do the talking for you.
It is these same people who wonder why others canâ€™t see God at work in around them. Families are of great importance in this area, often sons and daughters stay close to home even as they marry and start their own families.
Friends are not made easily but when made last a lifetime. A shoulder to lean on and a listening ear are always available and people are always ready to help when and where needed. It is not what people say it is what they do and there is plenty of doing of God's work in this deanery. There's always a smile in the Solway Deanery.
