Welcome to

St James and Christ Church

Welcome to the Parish of St James and All Saints with Christ Church

What a joy to be welcomed as the vicar of this parish!

Thank you to all who joined us for the special service held at St James recently. It was a wonderful, generous and joyful start to a new ministry in the parish of St James and All Saints and Christ Church.

Bishop Rachel reminded us that we need to let Christ’s light shine out into the community around us. We are not the light. Christ is the Light. Christ is the treasure within - and like thin clay pots, it is the cracks, the brokenness of our lives, that allows Christ’s light to shine through.

This is a great relief as I start as the new parish vicar, to know that we do not need to be afraid of our imperfections because God’s grace works in wonderful and surprising ways, even through the ordinary, the fragile and the broken parts of our lives.

And what is more, we do not travel alone.

I am hugely grateful to all who have worked extra hard during the months without a vicar, particularly Pat, our Associate Minister, and to our Church Wardens and PCC.

I look forward to sharing this journey and this ministry with you all.

With love in Christ,
