Keswick St John
Up St. John's Street from the town centre.

As the Anglican Church which serves most of this Lakeland  town we try to be there for everyone. Our main service each Sunday is our Sung Eucharist where you will be made welcome as visitors or if you have come to live here. We have a good choral tradition and one of the best organs and organists in the county. People tell us that we are a ‘friendly’ church and our congregation is outward looking and open. We immensely value the people who come here some from very far flung places, as well as those much closer to hand. Whilst being a church characterised  by the celebration of Holy Communion we also hold many special services for the town and place a great emphasis on preaching.

Our church can be seen for miles around, from the top of Catbells and down the beautiful Borrowdale valley.  It is set in a prominent position within the town of Keswick and is also distinctive with its atypical pink sandstone and spire. The Parish Church of Keswick St John was built in 1838, a fine example of the work of architect Anthony Salvin. There is some excellent stained glass, mainly by Henry Holiday, with a very interesting window by Veronica Whall.
