Church of England Diocese of St.Albans Silsoe

About Us

Welcome to St James the Great, Silsoe - we are part of the Joint Benefice of Silsoe, Flitton and Pulloxhill.

Our vision for our Church is for it to grow as a beacon of Christ's light in our community and we seek to operate by a set of values of:

Welcome - Prayer - Community - Friendship - Christ Centred

We would normally have a number of social and community events such as concerts, quizzes, etc through the year which are organised by the Friends of Silsoe Church and the Parochial Church Council but these events are currently limited due to Covid-19 precautions..

The Reverend David Payne is our Priest-in-Charge and we have 2 Readers and 2 Lay Leaders of Worship in the Benefice who help with services and worship along with other members of our congregation.

We fully support and endorse the Church of England's safeguarding policies for children, young people and adults. You can find full details of our safeguarding policies and Safeguarding Officer on our website at silsoe.3churches.uk/safeguarding-silsoe.
