Alans Last Service at St James'



It was fantastic to see a packed church on the day that we said goodbye to Alan and Shelly after 9 years of ministering to the congregation at St James'.

The day was charged with emotion as we heard Alan share some memories and also his passion to share the Good News of Jesus Christ, something he did frequently. Alan and Shelly will be missed by the congregation and also in the wider community. We wish Alan and Shelly God speed and that they will be accepted into the new congregations in Knaresborough and Harrogate.


Rev. Alan Crump Memories of time at St James', Woolton



After 9 years of ministry, Rev Alan Crump left St James' church to take up ministry in URC churches in Harrogate and Knaresborough. The congregation will miss him, but will be able to lead those in his new congregation to grow the Kingdom through sharing the Good News of Jesus Christ in their community and beyond. 

Youth Forum vs the world (or just the older folk from church). This match was held after the morning service at St James, supported by a faithful few the match was played on the field opposite the church building. There was some cheating taking place, won't mention the hand ball George. There was a slight hint of trying to knobble the other team, but in the end we counted all the players out and counted them all in, along with their sweaty exteriors. Great fun that saw the Youth Forum win on penalties.   

THY KINGDOM COME

Over May and June 2017, the railings of the church premises at St James' became a place of prayer. People tied a ribbon onto the railings to signify that they had prayed for someone, a personal difficulty or something that felt needed prayer. Sadly there were a number of tragic incidents during that time. This cross bears 1,292 ribbons, which are a representation of the personal prayers from people in the community.

Great Night For Liverpool City


Centre Street Pastors



An evening of song with, Amanda Henderson (Casualty's Nurse Robyn Miller) saw a full house enthralled at Amandas amazing talent for singing songs from many well know shows. 

This was to raise funds for the church refurbishment program and to support Liverpool City Street Pastors. 

The street Pastors are all volunteers and spend their Saturday nights caring for the revellers in the city centre. This concert raise a significant amount that will help them to continue their work.

Huge thank you to Amanda for giving her time for those cause. For those who didn't make it you missed an amazing evening.
