About Us

Welcome to Lakes Christian Centre, thanks for taking the time to find out more about us! We are a church that worships God the Father, Son and Spirit and proclaim the Good News of salvation in Jesus.

Our 11am Sunday Services consist of lively praise and worship, inspiring and challenging Bible teaching and Communion. During the service, Primary School children are invited to join our Children’s Church and Secondary School children are welcome to join our Youth ministry.

If this is your first time here we want to make your experience as comfortable as possible, so just a few things you might want to know... Firstly, there is parking available further down Longlands Road next to the Bowling Green. You can come in jeans and a t-shirt or a suit and a hat, you can sit or stand when you like, expect guitars and drums and people praying out loud, and please don’t feel you have to give to the offering or take part in communion (which by the way is red grape juice, bread and gluten free crackers). We’d also love you to join us for refreshments downstairs after the service!

We also have wheelchair accessibility via the front side entrance, we have a disabled toilet in the welcome foyer area, and to join us for refreshments downstairs - exit via the main entrance, head round the back of the church building via Longlands road and enter the Coffee Lounge via the small car park and courtyard gate.

Life at Lakes

As a vibrant growing family church, life doesn’t stop on Sundays and we enjoy meeting up through the week to fellowship, pray, study the Bible and reach out into the community sharing the love of Jesus.

You are welcome to watch our 'Life at Lakes' DVD which shows some highlights from a year at Lakes Christian Centre giving you a real flavour of our church family life!

What's on


Want to know more?

As a church we began life in 1924 in the Langdale Valley and over the years we grew and moved to various locations in the Lake District before settling here in Bowness. In 2014 we celebrated our 90th anniversary and the video opposite celebrates our journey as a church. We believe God is building his church here in our community and that our vision from Acts 1 and 2 (with regards to the early church) will inspire us to greater things in the future. You are welcome to read more about our vision below.

What we believe

We believe in one God, the Creator of all things. He exists in three Persons: God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit.
We believe in the Bible. We believe in its authority and relevance for mankind today.
We believe that each of us is a sinner no matter how good we try to be. This means we’re separated from God and his purpose for our lives.
We believe that God the Son came among us and lived as a man and his name is Jesus. He died on a cross to put things right and to provide us with the only way to get back to God. Three days later he rose from the dead and is alive now.
We believe that because of God’s Grace, we can be saved by repenting of our sins and placing our faith in Jesus.
We believe that every believer should be baptised in water.
We believe that every believer should be filled with the Holy Spirit.
We believe that every believer should become part of a local church.
We believe that God has a plan and a purpose for every one of us and being saved is just the start. His plan involves loving and worshipping God, and loving and serving one another.
We believe the Lord Jesus Christ is coming back!
