HOPE14 Update

What an amazing week we had across our Deanery as the gospel message was shared at 43 events. In addition approximately 1,500 children have heard about Jesus and been blessed by the ministry of Graham Nunn (Through Faith Missions) with his school visits and at the mega messy church!  So much to thank God for!

As a follow up to HOPE14 churches across the deanery are running ‘Just Looking’ courses.  If you attended any of our events and/or would like to know more why not join us ‘Just Looking’ at what Christians believe and discussing whether these beliefs have any relevance today.  Simply pop into church at one of our regular services or contact us at the church office via telephone or email and we will be delighted to have a chat and talk further.

The Town Churchyard at St James Church – joint press release with Southam Town Council

PRESS RELEASE

Southam Town Council and St James Parish Church

The Town Churchyard at St James Church

Most residents of Southam will, by now, be aware that the Town Churchyard at St James is rapidly running out of space for new burial plots and there are currently only four remaining. However, we wish to make it clear, that second burials in existing family graves can continue where there is space available and cremated ashes can also be placed in family graves as well as the reserved cremation area.

Stratford District Council was formally requested by St James Parochial Church Council to become a burial authority in May 2009 and to provide a municipal cemetery at Southam. This request was finally declined at the end of 2012. The situation so far as Southam Town Council is concerned is that it is not a burial authority, and to become one would incur considerable expense.

Coventry Diocese has been consulted but, although they will give what help they can, they will not develop a new burial ground.

Southam Town Council will discuss the matter at their meeting on 28th February 2013 in order to decide if it wishes to continue to try to find a solution to the matter. If it is resolved to take the matter forward the next step would probably be to hold a meeting at which the public could express their views.

This statement has been jointly agreed between the Town Council and St James Parochial Church Council. February 2013.
