We want everyone who comes to St James to feel welcome, whether it’s for a Sunday service, a midweek activity, or a special event.

At the back of church there is a Welcome desk with information for anyone new to St James, and after all our services there are people who would love to talk to you, tell you more about St James, what we do, what’s on and how you can get involved. You could also take the opportunity to complete a Welcome Card so that we can get in touch with you more effectively.

During the week, in office hours, any member of our staff will be pleased to tell you about St James. Our bookshop volunteers are also happy to help.

If you are new to our church, look out for one of our newcomers events. These happen about twice a term and involve joining Chris Green with other people new to St James, during the service. This is an informal gathering, with a chance to ask questions about life at St James.
