The Annual Day of Prayer and Giving Saturday 8th October

Our annual Day of Prayer and Giving for the work of God’s Church in this part of Colchester will be held on Saturday 8th October. All church members will receive a letter about this important day.

 The finances of the parish church rely heavily on this day, so please be as generous as you are able. If you are not part of the regular Stewardship at St James, you will also receive some information about this at the same time.

This year, with the prospect of an interregnum before us, it is even more essential than usual that we meet our financial commitments. Parishes that do not manage to do this may not get a new priest when they need one.

 Please do your best to join us in church to keep St James’ prayed in all day, or if you cannot get into church, please pray at home instead.
