Holy Island is a very special place in the far North East of England, separated from the the rest of Northumberland by a 4 mile long causeway, which is covered by the North Sea for 5 hours at a time, twice a day.
As well as being a place of great natural beauty, Holy Island (also known as Lindisfarne) is the place where Christianity first arrived in England in 635 AD. It has been a place of pilgrimage ever since.
St Cuthbert’s Centre is at the heart of the Island, offering a welcome to many different visitors, and a prayerful space for individuals or groups.
We have been closed due to Covid for many months but hope it will not be long before we can re-open and when we do, we aim to keep our building open from 9.30am – 6.00pm unless it has been booked by a group and we are closed on Mondays unless there is an exhibition on.
While closed, we have taken the opportunity to carry out some essential repairs but also some exciting alterations and improvements to the Centre. When we re-open you will find extended facilities for groups or individuals and over the coming months we also hope to make our garden an even more special place where you may find new nooks and crannies to just sit and ‘be’.
In the meantime you can follow our weekly reflections on our Facebook page each Saturday by clicking the link to the right.
It is my privilege to be the Warden of St Cuthbert’s and to exercise a ministry of hospitality here, on behalf of the United Reformed Church. Please take time to explore this site and to explore what we do. I hope to welcome you to St Cuthbert’s soon.
