Can you help?

Throughout this Corona 19 pandemic Saint James’ Church has been closed. However, the parishioners have still been working, supporting the vulnerable in their community where needed. The ministry of the Parish Priest still continues albeit in a different way.

The cancellation of our Summer Fayre due to the pandemic has left a huge hole in our finances. Whilst we haven’t been using the water, lighting etc. the church building still needs to be maintained.

Can I ask you all therefore to dig deep into your pockets and give what you can. I commend to you the Parish Giving Scheme. I hope you will take the opportunity of joining and helping Saint James’ to get back on its feet.

Thank you

Fr. John.

Rector & Parish Priest

Welcome to Saint James Church Website.

Working to serve God in our community

We are pleased to announce the church will be opening for public worship on SUNDAY 19TH JULY. There will be three services starting at 9.00am, 10.00am and 11am. Each service will last 30-45 minutes. Social distancing and hygiene measures will apply. Only 30 people will be allowed at any one service. The church is open for private prayer each week day from 8.00am -5pm and Sunday 10.30am -4pm until the 19th July.

Whilst our church building has been closed, our church - the people have been active.

Our parish magazine under the Editorship of Fr. Hugh Broad is still being produced and is distributed electronically through the social media and is available on this website. Our parish weekly newsletter also available on this website lets people know what is going on in the parish and sets out some prayers that you may like to use at this very challenging time. Whilst we aren’t able to ‘live stream’ church services The clergy produce a ‘Thought for the Week’ . This is available on this website and our face book page. We have also produced several videos all still available on Facebook.

The cancellation of the Summer Fayre has hit our finances very hard; being mindful of our call to be good stewards of all God has given us, we need to consider our financial support of our church. I commend to you the Parish Giving Scheme code 163070(QUED).

Be assured that although the church is closed at present, we are able to continue a ministry to the departed, under strict guidelines. You can contact me by phone 01452 720411 or email John Ward jfmw23@gmail.com or by mail to The New Rectory, St James Close, School Lane, Quedgeley, GL2 4PN.
