Happy St James’ Day!

Thanks be to God for this wonderful day! Happy St James’ Day, everyone. A slight sprinkling of rain but we carried on worshipping nonetheless! We were privileged to be led in our service by Bishop Andrew, Bishop of Ramsbury, and Rev’d Tim, and joined by Rev’d Claire Maxim, the previous incumbent who instigated the window project, as well as the artist, Sophie Hacker sophieartstory. It was a great celebration of our new stained glass window, now duly blessed by the Bishop. We enjoyed a hog roast and lots of delicious food, and thanks also go to those who played and sang at the open mic. The clouds and rain sprinkling couldn’t dampen our joy at God’s faithfulness to us! Thanks to everyone who contributed and came to our service. It was great to see you and enjoy your company as we marked this important day.

Sunday 25th July – a celebration of St James’ Day

A reminder that this Sunday we are having our special celebration of St James’ Day with a service at 10am in the churchyard led by Bishop Andrew, Bishop of Ramsbury and Rev’d Tim. The service will also include the joyful thanksgiving for, and blessing of, our amazing new stained glass window. It’s going to be a very special day, so our sister church, Holy Trinity, will be worshipping with us and no in person service will happen at Holy Trinity, because we will all be together at St James!

We will be outdoors, so come prepared, folding chairs and picnic blankets welcome! After the service there will be a hog roast lunch, and an open mic, so if you wish to bring along a song, please do. We look forward to fellowship together.

For those who wish to tune in to the radio service, our friends at Castledown FM will be broadcasting our Songs of Praise service, also at 10am.

WHATS THE STORY SUMMER 2021

What’s The Story is our Bible Storytelling and activity session for toddlers, preschoolers and primary school children, along with their parents or carers. We will be running this session on FRIDAYS during the summer holidays, commencing on Friday 30th July, 9:30 – 10:30am in the churchyard at St James. If the weather is inclement we may use the church building as we have in the past, but the plan this summer is to focus on picnicking with Jesus, stories of when he ate food with his friends, so we will be outside on our picnic blankets!
😍A note to our regulars: the change of day for these sessions is in response to other childrens groups starting up in Ludgershall on Thursdays, so we want to continue to offer something on a different day, and we hope you will still be able to come! 😍

Sunday 20th June 3rd Sunday of Trinity

Our services will be at 10am, in person in the churchyard and and on the radio with our friends at Castledown FM on 104.7FM.
If you are coming to the churchyard, don’t forget your folding chair or picnic blanket, plus a brolly or raincoat as the weather is looking dodgy so come prepared! Children’s Church will be running at our churchyard service – we will gather as a whole congregation before going off to our separate worship activities. Children’s Church are starting a new series this week, so a great time to join in.
If you are listening on the radio, our service sheet is available here: https://stjamesludgershall.com/service-sheets/
We look forward to welcoming however you choose to join our worship.

Rev’d Tim’s Sponsored Bike Ride!

We are in the final week before Rev’d Tim sets off on his sponsored bike ride of 70miles in aid of our stained glass window project! Please sponsor Tim, either online here: https://pay.collctiv.com/tims-sponsored-bike-ride-1971 or by putting your sponsorship through the door of the Rectory at 10 St James Street.
You might also like to join us in the late afternoon of Sunday 13th June when we will welcome Tim in the churchyard at the completion of his ride for coffee and cake. Exact timing will be advertised on this page on the day, but we think it will be between 4pm and 5pm. Or ride the final stretch from the layby at Wellington Academy to the churchyard to support him. Again exact timing on the day.
All in aid of a once in a generation installation of stained glass to celebrate our place of Ludgershall and God’s goodness to us. Amazing!
