Cockermouth Meeting

How to find us

There is a Quaker Meeting in Cockermouth at which visitors are always welcome.


Cockermouth is a historic market town town situated on the north west edge of the Lake District National Park. The Meeting House is situated in Kirkgate, close to the centre of the town. 



Meetings for worship are held every Sunday at 10.30am for an hour. The meetings on the second, fourth and fifth Sundays of the month are blended with those joining the meeting online.



All are welcome, not only members but anyone who wishes to enjoy the peace and quiet

of a Quaker Meeting.


Enquirers are no less welcome; their questions will be answered but there will be no pressure

to take the connection further. 



We do not hold regular sessions for children but visitors who wish to bring their children are asked to contact the clerks in advance.


Rooms in the meeting house are available for hire.


Behind the Meeting House there is a burial ground arranged as a large peace garden in 2000.

Our History

The Truth is one and the same always, and though ages and generations pass away, and one generation goes and another comes, yet the word and power and spirit of the living God endures for ever, and is the same and never changes.
