A Huge Thank-You

At our recent Harvest Supper Mary Williams, Terence Hill and John Tresidder, who had all recently stood down from the Fabric Committee, were enthusiastically thanked by the church family for all their years of dedicated service on the fabric committee, notching up over 100 years of service between them! They were presented with a wonderful cake made by Heather Shackleton showing the three of them sitting on a bench outside the church.  The cake was then sliced and enjoyed by everyone attending the supper.

Rev Vikki Bisiker

It was announced in church on 24 January 2016 that, with effect from 1 March, Rev Vikki Bisiker, who knows the church and the area (currently being a curate at Radford Semele and Bishops Itchington), would provide full-time, interim stipendiary ministry to St James for a period of four years, the first year being the time when Vikki completes her curacy.

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.
