WELCOME TO ST. CUTHBERT AND ST. AIDAN’S WEBSITE.

We are Church of England churches located in the North East corner of the ‘island’ of Portsmouth.

St. Cuthbert’s serves the community around the Baffins area and St. Aidan’s the Anchorage Park area of the parish.

The parish is a member of Inclusive Church, and want everyone to feel welcome to join us on Sundays or at activities on other days of the week.

We are looking forward to the appointment of a new vicar in the near future.

In the meantime, services continue as usual led by our Assistant Priests, our Readers and other clergy from the Diocese.

Do come and join us we will make you welcome.

May God bless you, today and in the future.

Churchwardens and members of St. Cuthbert and St. Aidan’s Churches.

CHRISTMAS CHARITY COLLECTIONS

We raised a fantastic total of £1,418.31 for Ickle Pickles during our Christmas services and Christmas Tree Festival and Holly Walker (from Ickle Pickles) was presented with a cheque last Sunday during the 10am service.
Many thanks to everyone who contributed to this very important charity.

What I like about St Cuthbert and St Aidan’s churches is …

“… the warm, and friendly welcome from the “meet and greet” team at services and other church events”.
