In our heart is a commitment to follow the way of Jesus Christ and to share the love of God with all.

Welcome to St James', whether this is your first time or your one-hundred-and-first, welcome! We are a Christian community that strives to follow Jesus by welcoming people of all backgrounds, nationalities, personal histories, sexual orientations, and gender identities. We worship, pray, and grow together, in both difficult and joyful moments, and on this journey we respect that we can be in different places along the way. In Christ, in this place, with these people, you have found a home.

Message for July 2024

Hello everyone, I hope you have been enjoying the sunny weather, although it may be becoming a distant memory! 

Several people from St James attended the "Leading your Church into growth" session, which was a very positive evening led by Rev Stuart Radcliffe. One of the main points was to create an atmosphere of positivity for growth. This is why we have been encouraging everyone to use the "Praying for Growth" prayer in Services, Meetings and our own personal devotions. We'd love you to give us 2 ideas in answer to this question: What should we be doing as a Church to lead to growth? 

The next session of the course is on Wednesday 24th July, 7.30pm at Trinity Church, Page Moss.

You would be welcome to join us! God Bless, Peter
