Dear people of St James and St Mary Magdalene, Quedgeley.We are very excited to be joining you, worshipping with you, and serving the Benefice of Quedgeley alongside you and your team of experienced ministers in your beautiful church. Our children, Daniel and Emily, are excited to be starting a new school and this move will be a big adventure for us all. We already have a very warm impression of you from our visit on the day of the interview and we are looking forward to moving forward together with you. Please remember us in your prayers as we will pray for you and as we all prepare for a new stage in the life of Christ’s Church in Quedgeley together.
Your brothers and sisters in Christ - Mark, Erica, Emily, and Daniel.
Fr Mark’s appointment is subject to the completion of the statutory HR processes. Bishop Rachel expects to license Fr Mark here at St James’ Church in May next year.
Please support Saint James' - we need you!
We are all living in unprecedented times. The church is no exception. Throughout the last few months Saint James' has continued wherever possible to continue its ministry in serving the people in Quedgeley & Kingsway.
The doors of the church are open on a daily basis for private prayer. Church volunteers have supported those who are vulnerable and assist others. Our parish clergy have been readily available.
Unfortunately due to the church being unable to hold its usual services, weddings and baptisms our finances are suffering. The church still needs to be maintained. The roof still needs to be repaired! Those costs will not go away. A regular contribution, no matter how small will help.Our most recent Quinquennial report is available here to read If you can help, no matter how great or small click here for a standing order form to send to your bank. Alternatively click on here for our JUST GIVING page for a one off donation - all donations are really welcome. Thank you. Please do support us - we really do need your help! Thank you to the people who so far have kindly donated to our Just Giving page. Tea @ 2 will be back in February! The opening has been delayed due to Covid. Let's all keep safe!
