Welcome to the website of the Parish of Whitehaven (the Church of England in Central Whitehaven). Please select the website you wish to view. The Site is usually updated every Friday (more often if there is news to add during the week) so please check back weekly- last update 7.18 pm 2nd August 2015. Updates in August will be subject to disruption due to the Parish Office being closed. Details of facilities for those in wheelchairs or with push-chairs/prams, and those with hearing or sight impairments are now on the 'Services' page for each Church. The Parish Office is closed from 3.00 pm on 30th July to 10am on 18th August.

We are currently in vacancy following the retirement of our last Priest-in-Charge/Rector designate. We have now appointed Revd Rob Jackson (currently of the Cartmel Peninsula Team Ministry) as our new Rector/P in C. He will start in late September-details to follow.
Currently contact details are via the Parish Office (01946 599485) or our Verger, Dorothy Graham (01946 693895) when the Office is closed.
All services are happening as normal, including Daily Morning Prayer as per the weekly diary. This includes Baptisms, Funerals and Weddings.
