St Bridget's is a rural parish church serving the villages of Bridekirk, Papcastle, Dovenby and Tallentire.  There has been a church on the site since Norman times.

As a Church community our aim is to trust in God as we discern His call; to follow Christ’s example and bring Hope and Love to all.  You are invited to join us in at any of our events listed to praise and worship God and Jesus our Saviour.

As part of the Cockermouth Area Team, we are committed to the safeguarding of children, young people and adults. We follow the House of Bishops guidance and policies and have our own Parish Safeguarding Officer, PSO.  For more information please see our Safeguarding page.
