Events and Fundraising

1811 - 2021: Over 200 years of witness and service

You are invited to join us in any of our events, to see our wonderful Church, and join our services - "Come and see!"

CAN YOU HELP? - There are also always places in the Sunday morning service (and on the afternoon telephone worship) for readers. 

Plus we need help with the ongoing maintenance of our church and hall grounds - none of the jobs are arduous - can you think about giving  your time? 

Upcoming events for your Diary

Coffee mornings are now of a Thursday (not a Tuesday as previously). Tea, coffee, biscuits and toasted snacks will be available from 09.30 to 11.30 a.m.

Tea and Coffee, Meet and Greet:

We are pleased to offer this opportunity to chat together over a cuppa following worship on the Sunday mornings following a Holy Communion Service and following an All-Age Worship service. This means there will be usually 2 Sundays in each month when we can meet and catch up on news, renew friendships and welcome visitors. The weekly news sheet will remind us of these dates.

Saturday 8th October:

Coffee morning from 10.00 a.m. until noon, there's tea, coffee, and lots of cake! It will be lovely to see everyone who can make time for a visit.


Harvest thanksgiving is on Sunday October 9th, as we give thanks and share with others, please consider making donations in the following ways: 

1) ‘All We Can’ gift envelopes for global concerns via the Methodist Church. Envelopes can be returned at any time and at the service itself. 

2) Tins and packet goods gratefully received during the service itself but also before the start of other services throughout October. 

3) Cash donations for local causes can be made in person in the service or via the Treasurer. 

The donations to the Treasurer and all the tinned and packet goods will be distributed equally between our local food bank, the Whitechapel Centre and the refuge/support centres we support regularly. These are difficult times and anything you can share will be greatly appreciated.  

Monetary Offerings:

Your monetary donations are vital to the running and future of St. James Church, please contact Margaret Dee if you would like to change your giving to a Standing Order or join the Weekly Envelope scheme (out now). 

Also, if you are a UK Tax payer, please consider Gift Aid, as the Church is able to claim 25% from the Government at no addition cost to you.

Recycling at St. James’:

We will no longer recycle batteries, ink cartridges or spectacles - supermarkets have battery and ink cartridge points, plus spectacles can be taken to opticians.

Church Flowers:

If you would like to donate money for flowers on a particular Sunday - perhaps in memory of a loved one or in celebration of a happy event - or would like to donate in general so that all Sundays are covered, please speak to Jonquil Dickson who can add you to the calendar or arrange the donation. At present, we have many dates available, we will then deliver those flowers to people after the Service. If you know someone who you feel would be blessed by receiving flowers from Church, please speak to Jonquil or a steward. We are also looking for volunteers to deliver flowers out to people.
