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. Please do contact us if you need support or help.

Message from our Minister:

Hello Everyone, I hope you have had a good week. For me this week has been one of Funerals, two of them at St James as we remembered the lives of Peter Sinclair and John Doig. Although each were sad occasions there was also the chance to celebrate and give thanks to God for lives that were full of loving relationships and amazing experiences. There was also the opportunity to reflect on the fact that our faith in Jesus gives us hope for all eternity, not only for our years on earth. I hope that your week has had some interesting experiences, time with those you love and moments when God has felt close to you.

God Bless Peter

 Morning Services

There are now 3 ways in which you can enjoy our Sunday services – by booking a place and attending St James, watching the service via Zoom or joining in on the telephone service in the afternoon.

We open our doors at 10.00a.m for Sunday worship and the service starts at 10.30a.m. Holy Communion and all-age worship services are held monthly, and separate Junior Church activities are offered to children of all ages during the morning service. Up-to-date information about forthcoming services is further down this page.

Booking is no longer essential, but it is helpful so that seating can be arranged to respect family groups and safe distancing, as well as providing Track and Trace details in advance. If you can let us know before the service then phone, text, or email Jayne McLaren in the preceding week. However, if you are not feeling well for any reason, or have recently come into contact with someone who is suspected of, or is confirmed to have, Covid-19 please worship via Zoom or telephone for a little while, to help us keep everyone safe.

If you wish to join via Zoom or for the afternoon telephone service then details are in the newsletter or email: [email protected]

Other online service details and  resources are available on the Liverpool South Methodist Circuit website here. Our Children's & Youth Workers have a YouTube channel called 'The Way', please share and subscribe:
