Restarting Services:

Services restarted at St James on Sunday the 12th July.  The plan is that only the 8.15am service will be back in the building for now, and the 10.30am service will continue on Zoom.
You'll be very welcome to either service even if you've never been to church before. 

If you come to the 8.15am service the welcome team will explain where to sit.  As per Government and Church of England guidelines you will need to wear a mask unless you are exempt for health reasons.  There won't be any singing, and the service will be explained as we go through it.  This service is also live-streamed on Facebook (click here).  

If, for any reason, you want to come to the 10.30am zoom Sunday Service please contact us for details of how to join online service.

If you have a temperature, or a cough or any other symptoms of Coronavirus, please don't come to a service in the church building, but contact us for details of how to join the 10.30am online service.

We are taking a break from mid-week 9.30am morning prayer Zoom services during August but the 9.45am Prayer Book service has restarted at St James (masks and social distancing please) and this is live-streamed on Facebook (click here).

Please keep an eye out for details of services in St John's Alsagers Bank and St Martin's Talke, which we hope to restart later in the summer.

With love from all at St James, St John's and St Martin's
