Plant a Tree

Two trees have been planted in St. James' Churchyard as part of a county wide initiative led by the City Council, Woodland Trust and Royal Forest Commission to plant 4,000 saplings to commemorate the Platinum Jubilee of HM The Queen. Cllr Justin Hudson delivered and ensured the trees were planted. The idea of planting trees in St. James' was initiated by Fr. Hugh Broad

Can you help?

Please support Saint James' - we need you!

We are all living in unprecedented times. The church is no exception. Throughout the last few months Saint James' has continued wherever possible to continue its ministry in serving the people in Quedgeley & Kingsway.

The doors of the church are open on a daily basis for private prayer. Church volunteers have supported those who are vulnerable and assist others. Our parish clergy have been readily available.

Unfortunately due to the church being unable to hold its usual services, weddings and baptisms our finances are suffering. The church still needs to be maintained. The roof still needs to be repaired! Those costs will not go away. A regular contribution, no matter how small will help.

Our most recent Quinquennial report is available here to read

If you can help, no matter how great or small click here for a standing order form to send to your bank.

Alternatively click on here for our JUST GIVING page for a one off donation - all donations are really welcome. Thank you. Please do support us - we really do need your help! Thank you to the people who so far have kindly donated to our Just Giving page.
