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.

This is a busy time in the Church. It seems that Christmas is not far behind us and we have Easter on the horizon. Sunday 13th April is Palm Sunday when we recall the triumphal entry of Christ into Jerusalem, the cheering crowds scattering palm branches before him. Then comes the betrayal by Judas as soldiers come to arrest Jesus. The mood gets darker as we approach Good Friday and the Crucifixion is remembered. This event, followed by the rising of Jesus on Sunday, forms one of the main planks of Christian belief, that Jesus was proved by his resurrection to be the Son of God, that he suffered for our sins and rose from the dead to be with the Father. The sudden switch from the dark despair of Good Friday to the elation of Easter morning is always uplifting and you are invited to share the experience with us at St. James’. Details of all the Holy Week services are on the Special Services page.
