St Cuthbert died on 20 March 687, so that is his 'official' day, but as this falls in Lent we have not generally held a patronal festival on that day, although he has been remembered in services around that date. However, his remains were eventually buried in a church in Durham, on the site of which the cathedral now stands, on 4 September in or about the year 999, so this is kept as the 'Feast of the Translation of St Cuthbert'. It is therefore planned to mark this by a Patronal Holy Communion service in St Cuthbert's Church in Seascale on 2 September
at 10 am.
On Sunday 30 September we shall be celebrating our Joint Harvest Festival Service.
It will be followed at 12.00pm by the Harvest Lunch in the Methodist Hall.
Sunday Services from 9 September will be in Seascale Methodist Church.
There is a regular Sunday Service at 10am and a United Evening Service at 6.30pm.
On Wednesday mornings there is a 10.30am Said Holy Communion Service in St Cuthbert’s Church.
On Monday mornings Mission Community Prayers are held. This simple service of Morning Prayer circulates among the churches of the South Calder Mission Community. See this page for details
