St. James, Bolton
Advent means 'Coming' but what or who is coming? During Advent lots of people have Advent Calendars counting down the days leading up to Christmas. At Christmas we celebrate the birth or the coming of Jesus to earth.
As we prepare for the coming of this Christmas why not ask Jesus to come to you...in the words of the old Carol 'O come to us, abide with us, Our Lord Emmanuel!'
Rev Steve Lees.
Sunday Services and Christmas Day
We will continue to have physical services each Sunday in line with the current guidelines along with an online service.
There will be a service in church on Christmas Day at 10 am, but there will be no virtual service.
Please note, there will not be a midnight service on Christmas Eve.
Christingle - 24th Dec
Due to the current restrictions on numbers, we are excited to announce our
Zoom Christingle service for this year!
Christingle packs will be given out on Sunday 20th Dec from 11.30 with everything you need to make a Christingle at home along with instructions on how to access the service at 6:30. So, please come along and grab one.
We are, unfortunately unable to have a physical carol service this year, but there are loads of virtual services, resources and broadcasts to keep you in the festive spirit.
