Daily & Sunday Services

In view of the National Lockdown and the infection rates locally as well as nationally, reluctantly we have decided to suspend in person worship on Sundays for the time being.  We will remain open for individual private prayer. 

As you will appreciate this was a difficult decision, as we say, reluctantly taken.  We are convinced, however, that at this time of national emergency, it is the right decision for us to gather online to worship.  We will continually monitor the situation and review this decision.

The church is open for individual private prayer 10.00-11.00am Tuesdays and Thursdays

Our worship this Sunday: 

Sunday 7th March - "How to be wise"

10.00am Sunday Worship (Live-streamed to our Facebook page and YouTube)

The fruit of wisdom is good decisions. Yet God's ways are often very different to our own. How can we be wise, rather than wise after the event? Please do join us as we explore the wisdom of God as perceived by St Paul.

Even though we are in our own homes we can still worship together. Indeed it is vital that we do. All are most welcome on Facebook or Youtube.

.Please join us for worship this Sunday. You are most welcome.

Mid-week Services  

Monday - Friday

9.00am Morning Prayer - please join us for Morning Prayer each weekday via Zoom (please note the new meeting details below).  This is a great way to start the day, listening to God's word and praying for his world.

Zoom access instructions

If you've not used Zoom before don't worry, it's amazingly simple.
1. Follow the Zoom link next to the service you wish to join.
3: The Zoomlauncher.exe should open automatically but you may need to be patient (if it takes a long time follow the instructions on screen)
4. Click on the launcher to open it and then click 'run'.
5. This will take you straight to our 'webinar' (service).
6. You may need to enter your email and the password (published alongside the service, above)
7. Click the green button in the centre of your screen.
8. Have a little experiment with the two screens. You can toggle between them.
Once you've downloaded the launcher once it's even easier to join a 'meeting' again - so why not get set up in advance so you know you're all ready to go when you want to join us?


As you will appreciate without collections from Church Services our finances as a church have been hit severely.  At this difficult time of restrictions the easiest and safest way to support St James' is via standing order or one-off donation through your bank.
