St Mary & St Michael’s Church, Urswick

           URSWICK CHURCH               LA12 0TA   

Dear Friends,

Anyone passing down Church Road in recent weeks may have noticed activity at The Vicarage. I moved to Great Urswick towards the end of January with Husband Ramsay and our children, George (17), Henry (16) and Phoebe (10). We also have a Collie, Reiver,       

Ramsay and I are both from Gosforth in Newcastle and have lived in Cumbria since 2000, for the most part in Kirkby Thore in the Eden Valley, before we moved to Ireby following my ordination.

I was ordained in 2013 after training at Cranmer Hall in Durham. I have served my Curacy in several locations including The Binsey Team, a deeply rural area comprising twelve churches and many more villages over 250sq miles. Latterly I worked at Crosthwaite Church in Keswick until last September, since then I have been taking a study break to complete my MA studies and training in interpersonal mediation. So I am very much looking forward to settling back in to full time parish ministry. With a passion for evangelism, preaching and mission I am struck by the energy, vision and gifts of the churches in Low Furness and can’t wait to be a part of it!

That brings me to reflect on my own priorities as I take up this now role. The first is simply to meet people, as many as possible, within the churches and the wider community. I look forward to meeting people at services and church events but also look forward to calling in to other places, be it toddler groups or craft groups (I enjoy needlefelting and knitting...badly!) Schools work is also important to me and I will be taking assemblies at Low Furness School and getting to know staff, pupils and parents there.

For me, meeting people goes hand in hand with listening. I am keen to listen to the hopes and concerns of our Churches and wider communities so that we can, together, discern God’s calling in all our lives. With the formation of mission communities, the Reach team and God for All strategy we are well resourced to do this in Cumbria. It is an exciting time and I am thrilled to be joining you all on this journey in faith.

So I do hope to meet with you soon. In the meantime, be assured of my prayers as I ask, in St. Paul’s words;         ‘Pray also for me…Peace to you brothers and sisters, and love with faith from God the Father and the                 Lord Jesus Christ.’   Eph 6:19,23

Yours in Christ, Lucie Lunn


An introduction by Reverend Lucie Lunn, our new Priest in Charge for ADRU Benefice serving the churches of          Aldingham, Dendron, Rampside and Urswick  (ADRU)


I hope you enjoy visiting us, and return to keep updated on “What's going on!” not just in our Church Community, but also in our nearby Churches and wider community of Low Furness, and beyond. We live in an amazing part of South Cumbria, bordering Sea, Morecambe Bay, and South Lakeland; comprising villages and hamlets; a rich and ancient history still visible, or just a little imagination away; where communities are growing together; where Community and Church are strengthening the whole.

It is our desire that you will find God’s hand and touch in this web site through all that is happening.

You can find out more of what we are getting up to as a family of Christians in the pages that follow. Likewise, something of our history and the things inherited from past generations that have influenced where we are today. We are on our common journey to grow in knowing God – who loves each and every one of us. You will find, too, our hopes and dreams for the future, that we in turn will hand on to the next generation of Christ’s followers, a happy, healthy, prayerful, and encouraged family of friends and neighbours with God invited into our lives. A family that gathers in Urswick, in Low Furness, in our County, and across the world – growing where we are planted, thriving, blossoming and bearing good fruit. That sounds good ! It is ! Together, with each other, and with God’s blessing and grace, we are equipped to get there. We would like you to come with us on that journey too, from wherever you are.

You will find contact details for us, links to other Churches and organisations, and so on, in the following pages. If you know of “Good” places to link to, please tell us. If you have comments bad or good (we prefer good, but need to know the bad to put it right too), please let us know. We would really value any comments and thoughts you may have on our newly re-designed website. We are still learning and hope that you have found your visit informative and worthwhile.

Should you have something you wish to contribute to this site – please send it in, or contact us.
