Sunday

Morning Service
St James is a church committed to serving the whole family. Our service pattern reflects this. We run a staffed creche and a full programme for 3-14 year-olds during the service. We usually begin with everyone together in the Church, with children and young people leaving for their activities in the Village Hall after 15 minutes or so. We also have several "all-age" services during the year, as well as a number of Church family lunches. All are warmly invited to stay for coffee after the service.
Every Sunday at 10:00 AM for 1 hour
Family Friendly Creche Sunday School Refreshments
Family Communion
Once a month the children start off in the Village Hall then join us later when we share bread and wine as we celebrate Holy Communion together.
Every second Sunday at 10:00 AM for 1 hour and 15 minutes.
