We want members and visitors of our church to feel welcome and valued - whether they attend services regularly or not.

Your engagement with the church community matters. You can help us grow our church and reach more people by inviting friends, volunteering, participating in community activities, joining one of our groups and giving generously.

Our Fantastic Groups

Community Groups

You are encouraged to spread the word of Jesus Christ and invite friends to join us during our activities, events and services. The church is open to the whole community and everyone is welcome (they don't have to share our faith or be regular church goers).

Click here for a list of the community groups who found their home at St James' Church (non-religious).

Church Groups

Everyone has skills and talents that they can use to serve God and our church. How will you use yours? We welcome you to get in touch if you have gifts you wish to share with our community. You don't have to be a regular church goer, share our faith or be religious to get involved, everyone's contribution is welcome.

Find out more about the ways other members of our church family are serving God and the community.


Our community are very generous with their time. The Church relies on volunteers. These are some of the jobs our volunteers do: cut the churchyard grass, arrange our flowers, clean the church, act as sides-man, read lessons and lead prayers.

If you feel you have other skills to offer we would love to hear from you.  We welcome a collaborative approach in our Benefice. Get in touch today.
