I've been so encouraged to 'see' the amount of prayer coming from St James lately.

Keep pressing in to God.

A great way to do this is the global 'Thy Kingdom Come' initiative which we've been part of over the last few years. 


Can I encourage you to use the resources below over this period?


...part of the focus is to pray for 5 people you want to know God's love for them in Christ.


Pray to bless and with hope and expectancy.

Rev Steve Lees.

We are re-opening!

We are pleased to report that we are reopening for public worship on Good Friday 2/4 at 2pm for an hour's reflection at the cross and then each following Sunday (from Easter Sunday) at 10.30.

All visitors will need to wear a face covering (apart from those exempt), and social distancing measures will be in place. There will be no congregational singing, and people are asked not to mingle and to leave the building straight after the service ends.
