What’s The Story? At Easter

This Easter has seen our What’s The Story? holiday sessions for 0-5 year olds, parents and carers and older siblings having a lot of fun and cramming a lot in! We have searched at the empty tomb for Jesus, run with John and Peter, planted mini Easter gardens to take home, looked at the folded grave clothes and asked the angel where Jesus is now. We have travelled to Emmaus, hopping and jumping along the way, we have met Jesus and heard his wonderful stories, we have made and broken bread and realized that Jesus is Alive! And we have celebrated throughout. We look forward to the next school holidays when the next session will pop up. Thank you to those who came for all that fun! Happy Easter!

We are in Vacancy but we are here!

Dear All,

We are now in Vacancy here at St James, and we are keenly engaging in the process of appointing a new Rector. We wish Rev’d Claire every blessing in her new ministry at Germinate, a charity for rural ministries. While we await the arrival of our new Rector, we are still fully operational at church, services will be on a usual and we will be here to welcome everyone as normal.

We will keep everyone up to date with progress on the new appointment in due course, but in the meantime, we hope to see you again soon.

Best wishes from us all at St James.
