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.

As our nation faces the unprecedented challenge of the coronavirus pandemic, Churches Together in England (CTE) is encouraging Christians across our nations to continue uniting in prayer, praying #PrayersOfHope in their homes at 7.00 pm each Sunday evening. Following the overwhelming response of the National Call to Prayer and Action, CTE has prepared a candle poster for those who would like to place a permanent symbol in their windows, visit www.cte.org.uk/prayersofhopeThis poster has been made available to avoid potential fire risk posed by live candles.

The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it.' John 1:5

Message from our minister:

Hello Everyone,

                       I hope you are all surviving "lockdown" and keeping in good health. I know that some of you have contracted the Corona virus and have been having symptoms ranging from mild through to very unpleasant. As I have heard of these I have prayed for you, and have tried to keep

in touch with you all in different ways. I miss all of you at St James; Sundays aren't the same and the regular conversations at Tuesday coffee are sadly missed too. In the service details listed below are are details of the Services on TV, Radio and the Internet (details of streamed Services are also included). I also continue to put my own thoughts on the Blog


May God bless you and keep you,

Peter

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.
