Each week when practical, the pew sheet is put on this website so that you can see the details of the service for the next or last Sunday. It contains details of the services, notices, contact details and more.

Remember that St. James’ church is a Parish resource and it is here for your baptism, wedding or funeral as well as for weekly and other divine services and concerts. Various groups also meet during the week. It is your building and you are invited to use it well. Use the ‘Contacts’ page to enquire.

Joan Adams, General Manager at Morning Star, sends us regular updates as to what is happening there; sometimes good and sometimes bad. Read the newsletter and pray for the people and the work being done there. The latest newsletter can be viewed by clicking the button below.


As we slip seamlessly from Spring into Summer, holidays are on many people’s minds and if you are going on holiday we wish you a good time and a safe return. Do spare a thought for those who are less fortunate, and particularly those who are fleeing persecution and terrorism which is dressed up as pseudo-religious dogma.

The churchyard regulations which are set by the diocesan Chancellor have changed a little. They have always been designed to achieve a balance between sensitivity to those who have been bereaved and those who have to maintain the churchyard. You can read the diocesan leaflet ‘Hallowed Ground’ by clicking here.
St. James’ also has a tri-fold leaflet giving information and that can be accessed here.

We now have an inductive hearing loop which covers most of the church.

We support charities at home and abroad. Please give generously to YMCA in Rugeley where young people who are homeless, or at risk of becoming homeless, are given a place to stay and support in life skills.

Both ‘Morning Star’ and ‘Hands over Africa’ are African charities which support children or adults who, through no fault of their own, find themselves in desperate need of help.
