Our services at St James and St Bede follow a traditional pattern, except for Cafe Church where brunch is available while singing hymns and taking part in such activities as craft, discussion and prayer.

Luke 22.19 Taking the bread, he blessed it, broke it, and gave it to them saying “This is my body, given for you. Eat it in my memory” 22.20 He did the same with the cup after supper, saying,  “This cup is the new covenant written in my blood, blood poured out for you.

We have regular Help and Healing services where people can receive prayer for healing, and pray for others.

In addition at St James and St Bede Church there is an opportunity for children to take part in the ‘Ark’ a time for them to learn and share within their own peer group.

All Age services are an important time where all church members are able to learn together and hear God’s word in a more relaxed interactive service.

Leading up to festivals such as Christmas and Easter we enjoy a range of services from traditional, to very informal.

Following the service we enjoy spending time together chatting over coffee.

All are welcome at our services, pop along and introduce yourself, we are a friendly group and always like to see new faces.
