Christmas Services 2021

Our lovely delivery team have been out and about getting our card with details of our Christmas Services to the homes in our parish, so we hope you have received yours, and can join us for worship and carols in church during the festive period.
If you do plan to come along, please note that in line with the latest Government requirements, we will need to use masks in the church building. Thank you.

Remembrance Sunday 2021

This year’s Remembrance Sunday service on Sunday 14th November, will start at 10am at St James, directly followed by the Act of Remembrance at the War Memorial, at about 10:45. The church service will be relayed via speakers to the vicinity of the War Memorial, for those gathered there. There is also a separate radio service at 10am for any marking the day from home, led by Rev’d Tim, and broadcast by our friends Castledown FM.

All Age Worship this Sunday at 10am

This Sunday morning, we will be having an All Age Worship Service, starting at our usual time of 10am. All are welcome!

Our Sunday morning service schedule has now returned to our pre-pandemic pattern, so all age worship will take place on the last Sunday of the month, with Holy Communion services on the first and third Sunday of the month, and A Service of The Word on the second and fourth Sunday of the month. Children’s Church runs every Sunday except the last of the month when we worship as a whole church family.

Harvest offering for the food bank

🌽🥦🥫🍎🍐🫑🍆Harvest festival is nearly here! As usual we welcome harvest offerings of food which will be gathered in church and then taken to the food bank after the weekend. At harvest, the food bank welcomes all produce, fresh fruit and vegetables as well as the usual longer life items, so we will be delighted to receive a wide range of beautiful offerings. If you want to bring something to offer, you can place it in front of the nave alter anytime from now until Monday. The church is open every day, but with the added bonus of the flower festival displays on Friday, Saturday and Sunday. Or bring your offering along to the service on Sunday at 10am. Thank you! 🍎🍐🍊🍇🍅🍑🍆🫑🧅🌽🥦🧅🥫🥖

Our In person service will be in the churchyard at 10am, for worship in the great outdoors. As always, come prepared with your foldy chair etc. For those who wish to tune in to the radio service, our friends at Castledown FM will be broadcasting our Songs Of Praise radio service, also at 10am.
