We run the church and parish most years at a loss. From time to time we need to replenish the coffers. You are invited to come along to St James’ and give a donation so we can keep our church open as a Christian reminder at the heart of our community; open for regular services, for baptisms, weddings, funerals, for the CLGB, for concerts, civic services, school carol services, laying-up services, ‘Light up a Life’  or simply so anyone can walk in and sit with God for a few minutes or light a candle.
