What’s On at St James’

‘Thy Kingdom Come’ is a global prayer movement that invites Christians around the world to pray from Ascension to Pentecost for more people to come to know Jesus. Since its start in May 2016 Christians from 172 countries have taken part in praying ‘Come Holy Spirit’, so that friends and family, neighbours and colleagues might come to faith in Jesus Christ. At St James’ we are dedicating Sunday 29th May through to Wednesday 1st June to this special season of prayer. People can drop in to St James’ any time during our extended opening hours, visit our prayer stations in the church, as well as attend daily set times of prayer (below), and also dedicate an hour of prayer anywhere and at any time using the online sign-up sheet.
