On Sunday, 26.5.13, the evening service started a new and exciting phase , in our development. Using the articles in the recently published book, “Why weren’t we told?”, we have started to exp[lore our understanding of progressive Christianity. Why not join us at this 6 pm service each Sunday, at St James. We are a small but growing group of people. During our time together in addition to worship, we allow people to share their concerns and problems, as well as time spent in discussion.
Jan Huggett is leading next Sunday’s service 19 May 2013. Jan might be short in statue but she has a prophetic voice that comes from deep within. She speaks from the heart and from life’s experiences. Don’t miss Jan next Sunday.

Last Sunday morning service was led by John Campbell and Piers Booth. The service built around the call of all persons who are followers of Jesus, in the many ways the church can serve the world. During the service we had drama, story telling.
Perhaps the latter proved to be the highlight, with a story about two jungle friends, Elephant and Mouse, who were called to lead worship in their jungle congregation.
