Want to support a good cause? Pam Alexander is walking 56 miles in February for REFUGE, who on any given day support thousands of women and their children  who are survivors of domestic abuse. Donating just £10 could provide a woman arriving at a refuge with the support she needs for her first night. £52 could fund her and her children's stay. £185 could fund the running of the Helpline for an hour. £500 could run one of the refuges for one day. Every £1 counts. Together we  can make an impact to survivors of domestic abuse. Pam will have a sponsor sheet in church each week for those who wish to

support her, or alternatively you can donate via her Facebook page. 


Harmony Café is on Sunday 12th March, arrivals from 3.45pm, singing from 4.15pm. We are planning to get together to sing some school Assembly / Sunday School favourites to welcome the Spring so please let us know yours and any particular memory they have for you. We can’t promise to sing them all, but we’ll give it a good go – and we can always meet again! Many thanks, Roy and Lynne Barker


In memory of her father-in-law, Fred, Debbie Stanton is going to run the Liverpool half-marathon on 26th March for Parkinson’s UK. The charity helps people  to live as well as they can and hopes to make finding a cure a reality. If you would like to sponsor her, she’ll have forms in Church – and, to add an element of fun, Debbie invites you to guess her finishing time for the opportunity to win a prize! Her training is underway and she can often be seen pounding the streets of Mossley Hill, Garston and Woolton at rather random times of the day – please do shout some words of encouragement if you see her! 


Our Church Pastoral visitors perform an amazing job of offering care to all members of our Church and congregation. However, several have had to retire recently and we are in URGENT need of more people to join our team. Each are allocated a group that they keep in touch with, offering spiritual support in times of joy and sorrow. We work together as a team and training is provided on a regular basis. If you would like to find out more about the role, please speak to Irene Elliott or Peter Hughes. As with all the roles in our Church, Pastoral Visitors will now be safely recruited which will include the need to provide referees, have a DBS check and attend Safeguarding Training.


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 taxpayer, please consider Gift Aid.


Recycling: We no longer recycle batteries, ink cartridges or spectacles please use the supermarket collection points and opticians respectively.


Church Flowers: If you would like to donate money for flowers, please speak to Jonquil Dickson who can arrange the donation, we have many dates available. We then deliver flowers to people afterwards, If you know someone who you feel would be blessed by receiving flowers, please speak to a steward. We are also looking for volunteers to deliver flowers out to people.
