History[edit]

A parish magazine of 1898 states "an afternoon service at the church room on Grange Fell has been recommenced for the winter months". This 'room' was in the home of Mrs Nell Smith who provided accommodation so people in the area could worship regularly. The present building was built in 1907, it was dedicated on 26 April 1907 year by the then Bishop of Carlisle, Rt Revd Dr Diggle.[2]

Today[edit]

The church is part of the Diocese of Carlisle, Archdeaconry of Westmorland & Furness and the Deanery of Windermere. Inside Windermere it is part of the parish of St. Paul Grange-over-Sands along with St Paul Parish Church in the town centre, both of which share the same vicar who is currently the Revd. Canon Nicholas Ash.[3]
