St James' Church
Methodist/URC, Woolton, Liverpool, UK

In our heart is a commitment to follow the way of Jesus Christ and to share the love of God with all.


The Covid-19 pandemic continues to affect us all and here at St James' we wish to be of support and will try to offer practical help to anyone that requires it in this time of crisis and uncertainty. Please do contact us if you need support or help.

Message from our minister:

Hello Everyone, I hope you are well. It is Advent again! Even though we have had a long and  difficult year, Advent seems to have come around quickly again. I trust and pray that however things have been and are for you, this will be a time when you know God's promise and the wonderful hope that Jesus brings to us. There is also the hope that we may be able to meet for worship at some points during Advent. Further details will be announced when we know what is safe and practical for us.


God Bless, Peter.

P.S. I also continue to put my own thoughts on the Blog.

For those who walk past and for those who may not be able to walk past at the moment, here are some of our prayers on the railings around our church buildings. They highlight objects in the grounds, and encourage passers-by to offer their own prayers, or use the thoughtful words Rev'd Peter has provided.

DEFIBRILLATOR
