An important Message from our Churchwardens

Following the retirement of Father John, we need to begin the process of appointing a new rector for St James.

As a part of this procedure, we would be grateful to receive your thoughts on life at St James. What do we do well? What can we do better? What might our priorities be for the future of this rapidly expanding parish? What are our strengths and weaknesses?

Your comments will be used to create a Parish Profile to help in the selection process. Comments should be sent to Ian or Paul, churchwardens, or to Lu, our PCC Secretary, anonymously if you wish.

Please do not hesitate to share your thoughts; we need your help in this important chapter in our life together.

Latest news...

There are two services taking place each week. The Sunday Holy Eucharist service commences at 10.30am every Sunday. The Wednesday morning Holy Eucharist service begins at 10.00am. Distancing and hygiene measures are in place. This is in line with Government regulations. Face masks must be worn.

The church is open from 9.30am -4pm every week day for private prayer.

Following Fr. Johns's retirement we are now in a period of interregnum. The position for Rector will be advertised through the Diocese in the New Year. During this period our Assistant clergy can still be contacted via phone. Please view our 'Who's who' page on this website.

Our parish magazine under the Editorship of Fr. Hugh Broad is still being produced and is distributed electronically through the social media and is available on this website.

Our parish weekly newsletter, compiled by Fr. Ian Robb is also available on this website letting people know what is going on in the parish and sets out some prayers that you may like to use at this very challenging time.

Whilst we aren’t able to ‘live stream’ church services The clergy produce a ‘Thought for the Week’ This is available on this website and our face book page. We have also produced several videos all still available on Facebook.

The cancellation of the Summer Fayre and now the Christmas Fayre is hitting our finances very hard; being mindful of our call to be good stewards of all God has given us, we need to consider our financial support of our church. We commend to you the Parish Giving Scheme code 163070(QUED).

Be assured that although the church is not operating fully we are able to continue a ministry to the departed, under strict guidelines. Please contact us further on 01452 720872 if you require further information.

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. If you can help click here for a standing order form to send to your bank. Please do support us - we really do need your help!
