Building the Church Building the Kingdom
To proclaim Christ in our worship and in our community and make disciples of all generations
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.
Life Events: Weddings, Funerals and Baptisms
Christening and Wedding booking Sessions are held between 11am and 12noon each Sunday morning.
No need to book, just come along.
If you cannot make one of these Christening and Wedding Booking Sessions, then please use the online enquiry forms found on the Life Events pages of the church website (Life Events) or contact us by email or phone 07715298711 (Monday to Friday 10am to 5pm). Please note that we will still need to meet you in person at one of the Open Sessions.

Rev Jen Croft will be giving a free six-week Introductory course in Britich Sign Language at Ormesby Library, starting 25th June at 7:00pm. For adults, 16+ and over; limited places so please contact Ormesby Library librarians if you wish to attend.
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

Gary the Camel’s Column
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!* 🙂
