Welcome to St Cuthberts Ormesby
Always know you will be very welcome and we hope that you find us open and friendly people who can provide you with relevance and meaning in your daily life. There has been a church here for over a 1000 years and we want St Cuthbert’s Church to be here for all future generations.
We have just paid £215,000 for a new roof and we need to urgently raise funds for restoration work on the tower, an internal re-ordering and a new lighting scheme.
Weʼre raising £5,000, please help us to help you by donating – click on the logo below.
Building the Church Building the Kingdom
To proclaim Christ in our worship and in our community and make disciples of all generations
We had a marvellous church social on Thursday 21st May at the Ormesby Institute & Club. A huge thank you to Audrey Robson who organised it, and the evening treated us to music, singing, bingo, a raffle and delicious pie and peas! It was great to share in friendship and fellowship with one another and we eagerly await our next church social event. On another great note – we managed to raise £600+ for the church so we are very grateful to everyone who came and supported it, and then took part in the evening’s entertainment. Thank you everyone! 🙂 Revd Jen

There’s such a growing gang of us now at St Cuthbert’s; because there is me, Elvis, Lizzie, Precious, Brother Thomas and Canon Henry Gordon Throckmorton, we’re quite a clan. That’s not forgetting Jim the rabbit, Digit the monkey and Spit the dog. You never know which one of us is going to turn up at the Family Service.
As you know, I’m a very famous camel; I am THE camel, because I helped to guide the wise men to the Bethlehem star. I told them not to interfere with my calculations or cramp my style with their pomposity! Spit!* They were cool. I liked the wise men. Us camels are very clever and can navigate the night sky. Spit*!
Elvis is a very famous donkey too. He is THE donkey, not just any old donkey… but THE donkey. He carried Mary when she was pregnant with baby Jesus, and then when Jesus was grown up, he carried Him into Jerusalem on Palm Sunday. How cool is that?
I’m sure that you’ll join with me to say a very warm welcome to Elvis and the others in the clan. Spit!* 🙂

I have to begin by saying that I’ve had a great month of April! Well….it has been a beautiful month and just right for us camels…nice and warm, bit of sand beneath the feet, people and other camels to spit* at. Just great 🙂
I’m an Arabian camel or dromedary, from the Greek word dromos, meaning “a runner” (Isaiah 60:6; Jeremiah 2:23), I have one hump, and I’m a native of Western Asia or Africa. I’m usually running from trouble these days though! Did you know that there are at least 13 references to camels in the Bible?
You can find out what I get up to on the St Cuthberts Facebook page. On the whole, I behave myself and don’t spit* too often!
I’d like to introduce another friend at St Cuthbert’s. His name is Elvis and he’s a donkey (really!) He tends to start singing Elvis songs when you least expect it though, and he loves munching carrots!
Have you got your tickets yet for our main fundraising and social night on Thursday 21st May at 7.00pm.
If last year is anything to go by then it will be a great night of fun, laughter and entertainment. The evening begins at 7.00pm and there is a Tombola, Raffle, Quiz and Pie and Pea supper; all held together by the entertainment of Janie St John.
Tickets are £5.00 each including supper. See Valerie Welford for tickets.
