Diocese of Carlisle

Faith Tourism

With an estimated 15 million visitors to our county each year, tourism is an important part of the Cumbrian economy. 

It is also an important part of the Church's ministry. Christians (and those of other faiths) have always made pilgrimage - indeed until modern times, pilgrimage was the only travel for purposes other than work or war.

Visitors to our churches need to be made welcome, and the opportunity taken to tell them both our story and the Christian story.
