The Wonder Club

On the second Sunday of each month during the sermon slot we will be having the Wonder Club- Godly Play stories for families in the vestry, beginning with Holy Baptism on the 12th of January.

St. James Charity 2020  

The PCC has decided that we will have a charity that we collect for in church, alongside the Foodbank, Leprosy Mission etc.

This will replace the usual giving at Christmas time from our general funds. The Willowburn Hospice will be the charity to be supported in 2020.

Look out for the collection boxes at the back of church if you wish to make a donation.
