Restarting church services at St James's Church

We would love to welcome everyone to St James's as we restart church services after lockdown and the closure of all churches.

The Rev Preb Philip Darby, our priest, and Marigold Seager-Berry, Chairman of the Trustees, met to discuss the rules and regulations to ensure that we comply with the guidelines from Church and Government.

We are confident that we are able to comply  with all the guidelines to make the church a safe place for us to worship together once again.

Date for your diaries

Sunday 16th August is the proposed date for restarting. It will be a service of Holy Communion at 11 a.m. taken by The Rev Preb Philip Darby.

I do hope we can all welcome each other back on that date and be able to praise God and join together in Holy Communion and Prayer.
