In Touch

Nick in the office

 

This section keeps people in touch with the church and the church in touch with newcomers and regular church members alike. We at St James's Church look forward to seeing you at one of our services or events. However, there is always somebody willing to chat to you, either by phone, e-mail or in person.  

Have a look at the Who's Who page where you can find details of the Clergy, Churchwardens, Parish Administrator and Organist.

The Office

Find out where we are.

The Office is well equipped and is located within the church itself. It is open every weekday which therefore allows the church to be staffed and open much more of the time. This means that people can come in to pray, sit quietly, or find out things about the church and its activities. Nick Bagge is the administrator. Please contact him if you want to know any information about St James's Church.

Bookings for the church, hall and upper room can be made together or separately. To find out about their availability, see the Calendar on the What's On page.

Ways we Keep in Touch 

The Parish Magazines have always been considered one of the main ways we achieve outreach by spreading news of our faith and what goes on in our church and further afield. 

The Weekly Pew Sheet, available in church ready for the Sunday servives and also on this website, informs the congregation about what is going on. 

The Weekly Newsletter (use the link to sign up to receive it regularly by email) is sent out every Saturday by the Vicar. It contains relevant information to keep everyone in touch with what is going on.

FacebookTwitter and Instagram are social media outlets which offer further means of contact with the public.

Posters advertising upcoming events on notice boards are continually being changed and updated and therefore let people know that there is a lot is going on.

To extend its outreach, the church delivers a 'You're Invited' leaflet every quarter to homes in the parish, advertising the forthcoming services and events and inviting people to come along. See some examples (they are proofs): Spring | Summer | Christmas.

The St James's logo, incorporating the landmark profile of the spire, is easily recognisable. The fluid font style of the church's name speaks of life and movement; the 't' looks like a cross and the colour version incorporates a ‘stained glass’ pattern - another feature of the building. Colour, text fonts and page layouts are deployed on all printed materials and signage and also on this website.

The Welcomers in church on a Sunday morning and the vergers at weddings, baptisms, funerals and other services wear name tags to identify them as being welcoming helpers.

The Website aims to serve the needs of the congregation and others by providing up-to-date details of services and other events. It describes what goes on inside our church,how things work, what to expect when visiting and hopefully encourages people to feel secure enough to take the next step.

Giving

Giving is very important, not only currently but for the future. St James’s Church has achieved a lot in its 150 plus years and the future is exciting, but that future is in our hands. Maintaining the building, expanding our ministry and supporting charities all cost money.
