St James

<span style="font-size: 1rem;">We are delighted to say that we re commenced our worship in church from Good Friday. Our schedule of services are: the first two Sundays of the month - Parish Communion at 09.30, the third Sunday is All Age Worship (AAW) at 11am and the remaining Sundays in the month are also at 11am (Parish Communion). The fourth and fifth Sundays are joint Benefice services held at a church within our benefice.</span>

Sunday Club for 4 - 11yr old children meet in the hall at the beginning of services (apart from AAW) when the children join the full service.

Our risk assessment is updated regularly as new guidance is received. This is available to see on the internal notice board or by contacting a churchwarden and we'll be happy to email you a copy.

To ensure we all keep safe please be mindful of the following:

If you are in a vulnerable grouping the advice is still to remain home as much as possible, although we very much want to welcome you please do not feel any pressure to attend. 

The wearing of a face covering is mandatory (unless medically exempt), 1m+ social distancing will apply and communion will be offered in one kind only and served whilst remaining seated in your pew. If you have any concerns please do ring a churchwarden and we'll be happy to help. (Chris on 01423 771991 and Sue on 01423 771734)
