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 again everyone! I am sure that we all feel more hopeful this week following Monday's announcement of the road map out of lockdown. It is wonderful that so many people are being vaccinated and that the other signs are positive. We are awaiting advice and updates from the Methodist and URC Churches, both of whom advised us against opening for worship earlier in the year. As soon as it is safe, we will be ready to open again and welcome you back. In the meantime, our Zoom Sunday Services, Telephone Worship and Worship sent out by post and email are available for you.  Please continue to keep in touch and pray. Don't forget that today is the closing date for Steward Elder nominations.

God Bless. Peter.

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

Picture from the Church Railings This week's picture reminds me that it has been a long time since I have had my rucksack and walking boots on for a walk along the canal! I am hoping to get back to doing that after 29th March. In the meantime, our Lenten journey in the footsteps of Jesus continues. May we all leave behind negative thoughts and actions, whilst taking on loving and positive ones and may this week be a new beginning with God for you.


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:
