Sustainability at our Services and Events

We are working hard to make our services and events as sustainable as possible.

Carlisle Cathedral


We focus our prayers on the environment at our Peace and Justice Eucharists, on the first Wednesday of each month.

As part of Carlisle Cathedral’s commitment to supporting the impact of climate change and environmental degradation on Christian communities in the world, we contribute part of the pledged giving income each year to charity. This year, one of our chosen charities is Christian Aid. For more information about becoming a pledged giver, please follow this link.



Our monthly Farmers’ Market includes a free stall run by Sustainable Carlisle, where you can give away your unwanted items and search their treasure trove for freebies! For more information on the Farmers’ Markets, see our dedicated page.

Did you know? If you are a local registered charity, you may be able to have a free pitch at one of our Farmers’ Markets. Click this link to find out more and get in touch.


Past Events

We hosted another community litter pick on Tuesday 11 June 2024, at 11.45am, as part of the Great Big Green Week.

On Thursday 4 July, staff from Carlisle Cathedral supported the Give a Day Carlisle initiative by helping out in the Tullie Secret Garden. Through rain and shine, the team from the Cathedral cleared weeds, renovated a vegetable patch, cleared paths and generally tidied the gardens. Thank you to Tullie for the very warm welcome.
