All Saints, Culgaith was originally a Chapel of Ease to the church at Kirkland and was rebuilt in 1756. The first baptisms and burials were recorded in the new building in 1758 and the villagers were also able to get married there until 1802. From 1802 until 1880 all marriages were solemnised at Kirkland before returning to Culgaith.
Services: See noticeboard outside church.

St Lawrence, Kirkland was originally the mother church containing the townships of Skirwith and Blencarn and the chapelry of Culgaith. The church was rebuilt in 1768 and again in 1880. To commemorate the Millenium the Parish Council and Eden District Council jointly commissioned a painting of the east Fellside from Blencarn artist Alan Stones which now hangs in the church.
Services are usually on the 2nd Sunday of the month at 10 am.

St John the Evangelist, Skirwith was built in 1856 and is known as the 'Little Cathedral in the Fells'. It was built by the Parker family for their son who became vicar there. The building is now in need of major repairs.
Services are generally held there once a month.
