With the scaffolding finally coming down from the bell tower, the second of our two new Scriptural Panels (below) has finally come into view.
It forms a pair with the lefthand panel on the west front of the church which reads: 'Jesus said 'I am the Way, the Truth and the Life.'
It is good to have the scaffolding down in time for Christmas and excellent that the external fabric of the church is now in such good condition.
On Sunday March 10th we will have a service of thanksgiving in St James for this work of restoration at which the Archdeacon of Southwark, Jane Steen, will be the preacher.
In the meantime, thank you to God, and thank you to everyone who has worked so hard to make this project possible: architect, contractors, and PCC building committee, not forgetting our generous funders.
