WE’RE STILL HERE! Use the Virtual St James section of this website to access resources for prayer and worship.

St James’ AGM (which would normally have been held in March/April) will be held over Zoom at 3pm on Sunday 18th October, and also live streamed to the parish YouTube channel. Joining instructions are on the Agenda below, if you would like to attend. We expect it to last 30-40 minutes. The Parish Report and Accounts are available below to download. If you would like a printed copy please contact the church office.

Seven Sacred Spaces

At the moment, it’s impossible to meet together, in large or small groups, in the way we’re used to. So is there another way of being a local church without doing this? There is one other tried and tested path – a shared ‘rule/rhythm of life’, which is being rediscovered in many places. Hot off the press, here’s a resource which explores the ‘7 sacred spaces’ as the basis for a shared rhythm of life. It’s gone out to cell leaders today, and we’ll make printed copies available in church. It’s designed to be done with others, so do get in touch if you’d like a travelling companion, and we’ll try to link people up. Click here to download the booklet.

Click on the link or search for St James and St Peters on YouTube to join us for our live services every Sunday at 10.30 a.m. or to catch up on recent services, webcasts and “Bitesized Prayer”.

Go here for Daily Prayer Podcasts following the ‘Daily Bread’ bible reading notes.

If you have young children at home, or are a school, click here to find resources. A new service, St James at 3, starts on Sunday 27th September at 3pm in St James church. This is aimed exclusively for families with school and pre-school children, so if that’s you, please come along!

Both our churches have a Facebook page, which is another great way to stay in touch if you are on Facebook. We also have a new Facebook page for the Virtual Prayer Room.

During the lockdown, we are encouraging people to support St James’ financially through the Givt app or by standing order. Go to our page Supporting St James’ for more details.

f you want to explore the Christian faith in more depth, or are looking for a safe and relaxed space to ask questions about God, life and everything else, we’re starting a short course in early October. Please let us know if you’d like more details of this
