Welcome to CTiC

In Churches Together in Cumbria we work and pray for the unity to which Jesus Christ calls us. We celebrate this unity through our county-wide Declaration of Covenant Partnership and Companionship Letter. We work for justice through our Social Responsibility Forum (SRF) and encourage environmental action through our Living Lightly programme.

Volunteer Coordinator


The Parochial Church Council has received a grant of £8,000 from the Heritage Lottery Fund, and an additional grant of a further £2,000 from a local charity (the Kirkland Trust) to enable it to enhance the experience of visitors to this historic place of worship.


These funds will be applied to consultancy advice on marketing and to the production of new information material and signage. The PCC recognises however that the success of the project will depend in large measure on the recruitment, training and management of a team of volunteer welcomers. To that end it is providing funds for a post of Volunteer Coordinator.


The post has been established for a period of eight months, from March 1st to October 31st 2019 (to include the seven-month period, starting April 1st, when guides will be on duty in Church). The question of the possible renewal of the post will be determined towards the end of the period of appointment; regard will be had to the financial position of the Church at that time and of any increase in income that may be attributable to the project.


The post holder will be responsible to Norma Bates (Vice Chair of PCC) and David Richardson (Churchwarden).


Part-time: 7 hours per week. The rate of pay will be £9.873 an hour

Requirements: Experience of management of volunteers and sympathy with the mission of Kendal Parish Church; good communication and IT skills

Cumbria Agricultural Chaplaincy PDF Print E-mail



Agricultural is a large and important part of our community in Cumbria and encompasses many people – including farmers and their families, auction mart staff, agricultural engineers, contractors and health care professionals to name only a few. Furthermore, the effects of what is happening in agriculture can be felt throughout our rural community and economy. Cumbria Agricultural Chaplaincy is there to value, help, and support everyone in our agricultural community.

Our friendly, experienced chaplains can be found on sales days at auction marts throughout Cumbria. Where they will listen and offer support, and sign point toward further advice or assistance.
