10.30am Parish CommunionRt. Revd. Rachel Treweek Bishop Of Gloucester We want everyone to stay safe and we understand that not everyone is ready to join us in church just yet - we look forward to better times!
Dear Friends,We were delighted with Sunday’s total of £1,100, and I want to thank everyone who contributed to it: the willing helpers on the day and before; the generous people who donated money but were unable to be there; Tesco for giving us a £25 voucher towards the food; and last but not least, Fr Michael for so kindly providing the wine. I won’t mention any names in particular, but you know who you are! Everyone there seemed really to enjoy it; I suspect we may have set a precedent!! Thanks, Val
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.
Covid has hit 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 we continue a ministry to the parish. Please contact us further on 01452 720872 if you require further information.
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. During August our local Councillors, members of the Quedgeley Community and members of Saint James' Church came together to deliver a Holiday Playscheme. There were lots of activities each week and the morning rounded off with a hot meal on a Monday and a packed lunch on a Thursday, along with some food items to take home and make into a delicious meal. The project was well supported. Thank you to all those who supported and our local Councillors for choosing Saint James' as the Quedgeley venue.
