An old village Church - in the centre of our community and for our community. We have a reputation for offering a very friendly welcome to all.

We are an 'open church'. Our door is never locked, and the building is now open again for private prayer. Please use hand sanitiser before and after using the church door, and observe social distancing if necessary.

We have now opened up for church-based services. Please go to the “Services and events” section of this website to see what we are doing at present – we also have Friday morning prayers of blessing for our community which at present is taking place in the garden at The Barn, Great Salkeld

  • Friday morning prayers held weekly to bless our local community.

    On Friday mornings, for just half an hour, we meet to pray God’s blessings on our local community. This starts at 9 a.m. and we meet at St Cuthbert's Church, Great Salkeld. (outside if possible but otherwise in church). At present some are also choosing to pray individually in their own homes. All over the country similar groups are praying at the same time. This is a positive way of praying for the community - especially in the current Coronavirus situation.
    A copy of the Friday Blessing Prayers is attached as a PDF file that can be upload - click on 'view attachment' below.
    Contact Peter Pickthall for more details: 01768 898396

    Every Friday at 9 a.m. for 30 minutes
