When you believe


Fond farewells to our year 6 leavers today from St James's School. Here is the year 6 choir singing 'When you believe' from the Prince of Egypt at our end of term service in the church

After they had all been presented with Bibles, and picking up the theme of the song about believing and miracles, I spoke on John 20.30-31: 'In his disciples' presence Jesus performed many other miracles which are not written down in this book. But these have been written in order that you may believe that Jesus is the Messiah, the Son of God, and that through your faith in him you may have life.' 

Bibles ready for presentation to our leavers

Outdoor praising

 It was SO HOT this morning that our planned outdoor service had to move inside - but we braved the heat for the final song, and finished up with choc ices and ice lollies for everyone

God's mission at Kagando


Good to hear from Peter and Liz Lunn at St James today about the work of Kagando Mission Hospital in Uganda on our World Mission Sunday at St James.

The hospital is run by the Church of Uganda. The chapel is at the heart of the hospital. Every day begins with prayer and worship.

This verse of our concluding song seemed very appropriate

By faith the church was called to go
In the power of the Spirit to the lost
To deliver captives and to preach good news
In every corner of the earth

Friday, 8 July 2022



Sunday is World Mission Sunday (11am) at St James with a special focus on Kagando Mission Hospital in Uganda which we support at St James  through our mission giving.

Come and hear guest speakers Peter and Liz Lunn speak about the wonderful work of the hospital
