Welcome to All Saints' and St John's

We are friendly rural churches in the southern Lakes, near Kendal. Join us for a worship service every Sunday at 9.30am in Underbarrow or Helsington. Everyone is welcome.

About us

All Saints’ is the Parish Church and St John´s is the Parish Centre of Worship in the Parish of Underbarrow with Helsington, in the south of the Lake District.

All Saints’ and St John’s are part of the Two Valleys Team, which includes six rural churches and St Thomas’s Church, Kendal.

St John’s Church, Helsington

We usually meet together for a service every Sunday either at All Saints´ or St John´s. When there is a fifth Sunday in the month, services on that day rotate in turn around all the Two Valleys Team churches. You can also come to sit and reflect or pray on any day of the week.

Visitors are most welcome to all our services in the Two Valleys.
