What we do
Churches Together in Keswick and Neighbourhood brings together members of the Christian Churches across the area, who have joined together to forward God's mission. We are a reference point for the church, for communication, the sharing of resources and ideas to hold us together. Our constitution is available here.
Please find details of our forthcoming events in the Events Calendar at the bottom of this page.
Reopening of Church Buildings
A number of church buildings in Keswick and neighbourhood re-opened for public worship on 5 July, whilst others are not yet in a position to do so. All churches will continue with their existing online offering. Details of which church buildings are currently open for public worship are available here. All are operating with social distancing and hygiene measures in place meaning capacity is reduced.
