Please join us and invite your family and friends to be with us to celebrate Mothering Sunday, which this year fall on Sunday 26th March. We look forward to members of the School community helping to lead our worship and there will be posies and seasonal refreshments as usual. This is a good opportunity to invite someone to join you at Mass
The Rosary will be prayed in St James on Monday 13th March at 7-30pm. Please come and join us in prayer. If the Rosary is new to you, do not worry, instruction is given and rosaries are available to borrow or buy.
Please join us on Sunday 26th February at 10am
when Fr Peter will celebrate his last Mass as our Rector.
His Retirement farewell is on Saturday 25th February

Our annual meetings this year are in St James’ Church on Thursday 23rd February at 7-00pm. To nominate people for appointment please fill the appropriate form. According to law, nominations for churchwardens must be made in writing before the meeting; I ask that they be with me by 18-00hrs on Monday 20th February. Nomination forms are available from me at the Rectory or in church.
These are important meetings for the church especially this year prior to the Interregnum – please attend if you are able – St James is YOUR church.
At the annual meetings we elect people for the PCC and this year three people for Deanery Synod, forms are available from Lucy Mason or Fr Peter and must be returned to Lucy by noon on Sunday 19th February to allow her to prepare voting papers. Fr Peter.
