Who We Are
St Patrick's Church, Patterdale, is a community of local people
who feel privileged to be able to live and worship in this beautiful area of the Lake District.
We love God;
we love one another;
we love the community in which live;
we love our building and grounds;
we love our music;
and we love our visitors (whether visiting in person or on the internet!)
We hope and pray that you would encounter something of God's love and our love for him and for you!
We are currently without a Vicar and in interregnum
Morris Rodham, our previous Vicar, has taken early retirement from 22nd January 2023.

I lift up my eyes to the mountains –
where does my help come from?
2 My help comes from the Lord,
the Maker of heaven and earth.
3 He will not let your foot slip –
he who watches over you will not slumber;
4 indeed, he who watches over Israel
will neither slumber nor sleep.
5 The Lord watches over you –
the Lord is your shade at your right hand;
6 the sun will not harm you by day,
nor the moon by night.
7 The Lord will keep you from all harm –
he will watch over your life;
8 the Lord will watch over your coming and going
both now and for evermore.
