Sunday School / Children and Youth Activities

Under 12s:
During the 10:30am service on a Sunday we have Kids Church groups for all children.

For years 6 to 10
If you’re aged 10 to 14, and want to make new friends, have fun, and learn more about Jesus, then come along to msg. Meeting fortnightly on Wednesdays 6:30-8pm @ St James’s Church, there’s food, chat, games, and a chance to think about the big issues of life.

Tuesday is your night. For Boys we run Base Camp, and if you’re a girl, its Girlz Only. The groups meet fortnightly, starting at 5:30pm, finish 7:00pm. Tea is included. Make sure you come ready to learn, and to play.

St James's Church History


The power of Christian prayer Grant me, O Lord...
Grant me, O Lord, to know what I ought to know,to love what I ought to love, to praise what delights Thee most, to value what is precious in Thy sight, to hate what is offensive to Thee. Do not suffer me to judge according to the sight of my eyes, nor to pass sentence according to the hearing of the ears of ignorant men; but to discern with a true judgment between things visible and spiritual, and above all, always to inquire what is the good pleasure of Thy will.
