The Big Vision

That the Churches, the surroundings and the Rectory buildings are creatively and sustainably utilised for the benefit of the local community, visitors and the Ministry and Mission of the church.

The Big Vision is the project title of the piece of work we are doing considering the three church buildings in Kirkby Lonsdale (St Mary's Church of England, Kirkby Lonsdale Methodist Church and St Joseph's Roman Catholic Church), the Rectory buildings including the Rectory, the Vicarage and St Mary's Cottage, and the Cemeteries, the Glebe Field and Cockpit Hill.

We will shortly be starting a local community and visitor consultation. Details will be provided here.



The Project Team comprises Peter Gregson (Chair), Rev Richard Snow, Rev Wendy Thornton, Rev Anne Pettifor, Anne Foulerton, David Dalgoutte, Mike Cunningham and Merlin Hibbs.

The comments received from the consultation with the congregations in May 2019 are here.
