Please explore the pages of our website which give information about St James' and what's going on.  

St James' is open for public worship at 09:00 and 10.30 each Sunday.  

If you would like to download a reflection based on the readings for Sunday, you can find it here.

During the coronavirus restrictions when we were unable to gather in person we offered pre-recorded worship on YouTube. Now that we are back in the building we no longer create pre-recorded material regularly, but you can review archive material here.

Please be assured of our prayers at this time of continued uncertainty.

We are not people of fear:
we are people of courage.
We are not people who protect our own safety:
we are people who protect our neighbours’ safety.
We are not people of greed:
we are people of generosity.
We are your people God,
giving and loving,
wherever we are,
whatever it costs
For as long as it takes
wherever you call us.
