** On the first Sunday of each month there is an All Age Eucharist at 10.00am. This service lasts about an hour and is orientated towards families and children.
St James' has a long musical tradition. We also have a team of servers who assist with the worship. Our head server and sacristan is Alan Boulton. New choir members and servers are welcome.
Weekday ServicesThere is a service of Holy Communion each Wednesday at 9.30am. There are also celebrations of the Eucharist on major festivals and saints' days. Please see the events calendar or parish magazine for times of these services.
A warm welcome awaits you at St James's.
BaptismsWe welcome families who wish to bring their children to be baptised. Please contact the Vicar directly or come to a church service and introduce yourself. Baptisms are held most Sundays at 12 noon. After arranging a date for the ceremony the Vicar will meet with you to go through the service and complete the baptism form.
Knowing More about the Christian Faith and the ChurchThere are regular meetings of groups for adults wishing to explore more about the Christian Faith and the Church. Following the short course, there is the option of Confirmation.
If you are planning to get married the best way to do so is in church in the presence of God.
You can be married in church if you have some kind of connection with St James'. For example:
- You live in the Parish
- You come along to church regularly
- You were christened or confirmed here
- Your parents or grandparents come to church, or were married here
For all enquires about weddings and banns of marriage please contact the Vicar.
