Rev. Alistair Smeaton

The Cockermouth United Reformed Church was established in the year 1651 as the Congregational Church.

The church was established in 1651 as the first Independent (subsequently Congregational) Church in Cockermouth.

Its trials and tribulations are well documented (see Bradbury´┐Żs History of Cockermouth) and an early 18th century chapel, now a dwelling, stands behind the present building erected in 1850. Major modifications took place in the early 1990s when the church was divided horizontally; the lower part being converted into a general purpose function room with kitchen and toilets while the upper floor remained as the place of worship.

The building and its forecourt are extensively used:
The main Sunday service is at 10.30 am followed by refreshments. A thriving toddler group meets on Monday mornings. The church is part of a United Reformed family across the county served by several ministers. The primary minister is currently Alistair Smeaton who can be contacted at 01900 602385 or alistair.smeaton@nwsynod.org.uk
The church is part of a local network of churches called the Grasmoor mission community and actively works with all local churches through Churches Together in Cockermouth and area. The church is glad that the building and forecourt is extensively used by many local community organisations.
