A midweek service of Holy Communion at 10am on a Wednesday. This service is one of St James’ best kept secrets; an uncluttered service, with space and silence, a short homily and gathering around the table to recall and give thanks for all God has done for each one of us through His Son. On the 1st Wednesday of the month this service is held at The Croft off London Road.

Eucharist/Holy Communion Common Worship

Parish Communion

Our 9am Sunday service has a traditional Anglican Holy Communion format, which is familiar to many, and we are led in our worship by an organist and robed choir. Booklets are provided to guide us through the service. Though the service is liturgical, it has an informal feel and there is space for silence and reflection. Later in the morning is our 11am Informal Worship.
