Trinity Sunday 12th June

Reminder! This Sunday, 12th June, Trinity Sunday, there will not be any service at St James, because we are joining our sister church at Holy Trinity Church Tidworth at 11am to worship together! We will celebrate their patronal festival, which is like the church’s birthday, and after the service they will be serving up a bbq lunch! We are really looking forward to it. All welcome to join us over at Holy Trinity!

Annual Parochial Church Meeting – Sunday 1st May

Exciting times ahead! On Sunday 1st May we will be holding our Annual Parochial Church Meeting, which is a time to report back to our church family about what we have done in the last year, and to elect our church wardens and PCC members for the year ahead. In preparation, we have collated a set of reports from various areas of church life for you to read ahead of the meeting. Please click the link to read the reports as a pdf.

The APCM will bookend the Sunday Service, with the election of churchwardens directly before worship commences and then the remainder of the meeting will happen following coffee in the Hall after our service. It is wonderful when we have as many members of our church community together for this meeting, so please come if you can.

Urgent appeal for Magnolia cuttings!

Urgent plea! Do you have a Magnolia in your garden? Would you be willing to give it a prune and donate the cuttings to our Flower Team? If so please call 01264 790780 to arrange a suitable time for the team to take and collect the cuttings.

The reason for this plea is that our brilliant Flower Team are joining the team at Salisbury Cathedral at the end of April to make beautiful festive floral swags for display in the Cathedral itself. It’s an exciting project, but Magnolia was to be a central component and they haven’t nearly enough arranged for the display yet! Any help gratefully received! Thank you!
