History of Wetheral Parish Church
Wetheral Parish Church is situated on the banks of the River Eden in the picturesque village of Wetheral. As well as being a church building of great historical significance, it is also a church which has it's doors open to visitors of all ages. These include schools, uniformed groups and church led parent and toddler groups. Wetheral Church has proved to be an ideal venue for children and young people to learn more about the christian faith from members of the church family as well as being a place where visitors from all over the world can come and appreciate the beauty and find a place for quiet reflection.
One of the highlights of the year at Wetheral Church has been the christmas services which draws large numbers of visitors and people from the local community.
Over the years there have been various projects undertaken to improve the interior of the church. Work was completed in 2016 to improve the entrance to the main church sanctuary with new inner doors fitted to improve access for all ages, as well as additional heating and lighting. Due to the growth of the Tuesday Tots Cafe group at Wetheral Church, a new modern kitchen was fitted in 2017.
