A Prayer at this time

Father God, the rainbow you created is a sign of hope at this time of uncertainty. Like its colours we pray that we, in all shades of difference, may come together as one family of faith to love and support each other through these times of anxiety and distress. Stay by our side and bring us safely to the beginning of each new day.  Amen.

Wearing of face masks

It is a mandatory requirement that face coverings be worn by all those attending a place of worship, including ministers, worshippers, staff, volunteers, contractors and visitors, where there may be other people present; remembering that they are mainly intended to protect other people, not the wearer, from coronavirus COVID-19 and that they are not a replacement for physical distancing and regular hand washing.

Online Worship this Sunday 

We continue to tour round the Diocese for our Sunday morning Diocesan Service. This week we will be joining the people of St Leonard’s, Padiham for a service led by Canon Mark Jones. It can be viewed from 9am on Sunday on the  Diocesan Youtube Channel.


And as usual the Cathedral will be broadcasting a service from 9am. Simply tune in to the Cathedral webpage

During lockdown many people in the congregation have been pursuing creative activities. Christine Hewitson recently painted this wonderful picture of the Altar & Sanctuary and the one of our church.

In order to comply with the Government guidelines on Covid-19 and as we are entering another lockdown period, St James’ Church will not be open for services from November 5th but will be open for private prayers on Sunday mornings from 9.00am until 11.15am.
