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.

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.

Africa which St. James’s supports with both money and prayer.
Each week when practical, the pew sheet is put on this website so that you can see
the details of the service. Take a look at the latest one. It contains details of
the services, notices, contact details and more.
Thanks are due to Graham and Val and to the JAM Club Mums for a splendid ‘Edwardian
Tea’. The food, drink and the company was all first class and it was a most innovative
fund-raiser for the church. If you missed it, you missed a treat.
Now that our contact with Aelfgar House is established, we are collecting essential
items for the young people there. Last month it was non-perishable food, this month
it is single bedding or towels. If you have any you no longer need, even used ones
in good and clean condition, please consider donating them. There is a box at the
back of church, or contact us for collection. Thank you.
