On 6th March, Ash Wednesday Fr James is looking for laity support to set up a station by the double gates of the church ready for 6.30am – 9am for free beverages for commuters whilst making it obvious he will be there for commuters to receive prayer and Imposition of Ashes to help them make their start for Lent in their busy lives.

Talents Evening 30th March

Just to remind you that the Talents Evening will be taking place in the New Hall, St James’ School, Guildford Road, on Saturday 30 March, at 6.30pm (doors open at 6pm). Tickets are now available from The Rectory, 50B Priory Street and from Pat French, either at church or 60A East Hill. School children and their families will be able to get tickets from the School Reception, making payment in the same way as for school lunches etc. Tickets are £5 for adults and £1 for accompanied children (those performers will get in free). Please note that these prices are the same as they were at the last Talents Evening, 10 years ago!! All proceeds from the evening will be for St James Church.

The list for entering your name and your God-given talents is now on the notice board in church. I would love to see that list full of names and the talents that you are offering. It will be a very informal evening, come and join in the fun!
