This parish is in the Cheshunt Deanery of St Albans Diocese. Built in 1862 as a daughter church to St Mary Cheshunt, St James has been the Parish Church (Church of England) of Goffs Oak and Hammondstreet since 1871. The building is a light and airy Victorian building with handsome proportions and a beautiful wooden roof set in a quiet pleasant spot. In 2006 the church was radically re-ordered and refurbished. We are sure that the building as it now is pays tribute to its Victorian past but provides up-to- date facilities, paying attention to comfort, accessibility and flexibility. We are Modern Liberal Catholic in Worship and Teaching. We welcome all ages to our main Sunday service Eucharist – Holy Communion – Mass.
Our Vision is "A growing, welcoming and outward looking church with an inclusive mix of people of all ages committed to moving with the times!
Our Priorities are: to develop a wider range of opportunities for spiritual nurture and refreshment; to work with other agencies to support the needy, especially the elderly, so that they may continue to enjoy a good quality of life; to share the Good News widely but most especially with younger families, children and young people.
Our Goals are: enhanced support and nurturing of baptism families and other "Fringe" members and raise awareness of good stewardship of time, talents and money both within family and church contexts.; continue with annual "Experience" Event and further develop the quarterly Schools'/Community Links Cafe Church venture; further development of the "Stay and Play" Fellowship Group for parents and toddlers; continue monthly joint Evening Worship; offer more opportunities for spiritual nurture - monthly Arts and Spirituality Supper Club; explore the development of a Spiritual Fitness Course (total fitness - body, mind and spirit).
Our magazine is produced quarterly and can be collected, sent by post or sent electronically. It is full of helpful dates and interesting articles. Please contact Nicola Stow for further details (07765 060003 [email protected])
