‘Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God.’ [Philippians 4.6]
Welcome to St James’s Church
We’ve entered a new reality in our church.
This is the first time since the 13th century that public worship has been suspended in England, so you can well imagine that we are in extraordinary times.
There have been press reports giving the impression that people will be able to go into churches from Saturday 13 June for private prayer. Some churches who are used to having their buildings regularly outside of worship, prayer and events might be keen to have their churches open once more.
The restrictions being placed on churches in order for buildings to be open—not to mention protocols regarding the supervision of visitors, as well as stringent procedures for cleaning the church between visits—make opening the building at the present not feasible for us. We are striving to open up the building again once it is safe and prudent to do so, but not before.
But St James’s is still carrying on:
Two Bible study groups every week
Get-togethers for social connectedness
Pastoral care for those in need
You can find details on our page What’s on at St James’s.
Prayers? Support? Requests? Enquiries? Feel free to contact us.
We still publish weekly newsletter The Highway Weekly as usual (you can download the most recent issues below)
Do you wish you to give to the ministry and mission of St James’s, and for its work in the local community?
