The morning service is our main weekly gathering when the majority of people who attend St James' will meet. There is a full youth and children's programme laid on each week, ranging from a creche through to teens.

We sing a blend of contemporary and traditional hymns and songs and prayers are said. At the heart of the service is time to read from God's word, the Bible, and listen to a sermon. There is always an opportunity to stay behind afterwards to chat over a cup of tea or coffee.
