Faith and Life

Worship is at the heart of our Christian lives
We have a pattern of services on Sundays and during the week, and we mark important occasions in the church’s year with special services to celebrate Advent, Christmas, Candlemas, Lent, Holy Week, Easter, Ascension, Pentecost, Harvest and All Souls.

Our Mission Statement

  • We aim to be a vibrant Christian presence which reaches out to others by reflecting God’s love into the community and the wider world.
  • We aim to be inclusive and accessible. Everyone from the youngest to the oldest is to be valued, treated with respect, and cared for in the love of Christ.
  • We commit ourselves to working in partnership with other Christian churches for the proclamation of the gospel.
  • We aim to promote understanding and cooperation with those of other faiths for the common good

We welcome people who want to come for Baptism (Christening) or Confirmation, either for themselves or for their children.
For those with a connection to the parish, Js and Bs is a lovely place to be married.
We provide a safe and supportive place for funerals where we thank God for, and commemorate the life of someone who has died.

Services at J’s and B’s

Our main services are normally streamed online via YouTube. You can click the link below to join us live at our 10am Services or catch up later in the week. (NB the stream usually goes live around 10minutes before the service starts - you might to refresh your page if last week's service is still showing. If you're watching later you might need to skip forward to the start of the service). 

  • Sunday 10:00am – Sung Parish Communion
    Followed by free fair trade coffee/tea/juice
  • Sunday 5:30pm - Evening Prayer

Open for Prayer and Reflection

St. James’ and St. Basil’s Church is open between 9am and 6:00pm most days for prayer and reflection.
A member of our team aims to be present every day for Morning Prayer at 9am Monday to Friday and again at 5:30pm for Evening Prayer.

However you look to God, what ever your tradition, or none, you are welcome to use the Church as a place of sanctuary and a place of prayer and peace. 

Prayer can be open and spontaneous, but some people prefer to be able to read a prayer written by someone else. The Memorial Chapel, to the right of the door, has a variety of ways to engage in prayer. You may want to light a candle, leave a written prayer or picture, or use an image to help you pray and draw close to God.
