Sharing the love of Jesus with the community we serve
Welcome to the ‘Home’ page of the St. James’s web site. You will find all manner
of information in the following pages and we hope you enjoy looking at them. Feel
free to contact us using the information on the ‘Contacts’ page. Whether you need
to contact the vicar or the Parochial Church Council, a Churchwarden or the Child
Protection Officer, the contact details are there and you are invited to use them.
St. James’s is a small parish church in a rural setting and although we could not
compete with a city centre church for the activities we enjoy, much more goes on
than one might imagine. From weekday services to concerts and school visitors, and
churchyard maintenance parties, this lovely Norman church doesn’t sit idly between
Sundays. Take a look at the events, services and special services pages, not forgetting
and JAM Club and other regular and occasional events.

Each week when practical, the pew sheet is put on this website so that you can see
the details of the service. It contains details of the services,notices, contact
details and more.
Read the October Newsletter from Joan Adams at ‘Morning Star’, the charity in South
Africa which St. James’s supports with both money and prayer.
Please donate items for the young people at Rugeley Foyer (Aelfgar House). There
is a box at the back of church for items with a note of what is currently being collected
for them, tins or packets of food, clothing, Christmas presents etc.. These young
people have nothing and, being unable to live at home, Rugeley Foyer provides them
with shelter and education to enable them to live what most of us know as a normal
and happy life.
We have some excellent bell-ringers at St. James’s and if you would like to join
them, whether you have some experience or you wish to learn, contact us. We have
a ring of six bells, the details of which you can find on the ‘Building’ page.
Our Carol service is on Sunday 15th December at 6.00pm. Join us for some familiar
readings and some not so familiar. Rev. David Newsome leads us in a fresh look at
the Christmas story in carols, poems and readings.
