On Mothering Sunday, March 31st, at 10am, why not come and have breakfast with the family of St James’. Sadly we can’t do the whole bacon and eggs malarkey, but we do a great continental style breakfast with fresh coffee, tea or juice! It’s a great way to get to know others and enjoy a croissant or two. Afterwards, there’ll be a short family friendly service. No charge but donations towards costs gratefully received.

Don’t forget that the clocks go forward the night before!
