This year as part of the season of Advent, in the lead up to Christmas, St James Church focused on the theme of ‘Gladness and Generosity’. 

We decided to create a Community Advent Calendar to share the Christmas Story and invited children from Woolton Primary School, our church, the Rainbows, Brownies and Guides, the Beavers, Cubs and Scouts, the Girls’ Brigade, the Boys’ Brigade and also members of our congregation to design and colour a scene from the Christmas story. 

The response was brilliant and each day throughout Advent we added picture from the story to the railings in our journey towards Christmas Day when we will celebrate the birth of Jesus. We do hope that you enjoyed our Advent Calendar, discovering the Christmas Story as it unfolded each day, and you shared in our Gladness as we celebrated the true meaning of Christmas - to see the pictures again please click here.

St James are pleased to announce we are now officially registered as a Place of Welcome, with our Tuesday Coffee mornings designated as such. Please come along and join us.

The Easter Experience saw 200 children and young people accompanied by 40 Leaders visit St. James over 4 days to walk in the footsteps of the first disciples as they discovered that Jesus is Alive.

Please see our Easter experience page to see some pictures and read about this wonderful event.


St James are now the proud owners of a defibrillator thanks to the fund raising walk by Rob Swindells of the BB with help from Amy and team in the GB.  This machine was purchased from the Oliver King Foundation and is now fitted in the front entrance of the Church Hall. To find out more about the Oliver King Foundation contact:

Over May and June, the railings of the church premises at St James' became a place of prayer. People tied a ribbon onto the railings to signify that they had prayed for someone, a personal difficulty or something that felt needed prayer. Sadly there were a number of tragic incidents during that time. The cross bore 1,292 ribbons, which are a representation of the personal prayers from people in the community.

Great Night For Liverpool City

Centre Street Pastors

An evening of song with, Amanda Henderson (Casualty's Nurse Robyn Miller) saw a full house enthralled at Amandas amazing talent for singing songs from many well know shows. 

This was to raise funds for the church refurbishment program and to support Liverpool City Street Pastors. 

The street Pastors are all volunteers and spend their Saturday nights caring for the revellers in the city centre. This concert raise a significant amount that will help them to continue their work.

Huge thank you to Amanda for giving her time for those cause. For those who didn't make it you missed an amazing evening.
