St James Parish Feast Day

As we approach our Parish Feast Day on Sat 25 July, we reflect on how much we yearn to be together like old times.

Well whilst we cannot meet in person we are still having our Feast Day Fridge event to try to connect with you all and continue some traditions in these strange times.

Stay tuned for more updates on how to purchase your chance at winning the 2020 St James Feast Day Fridge and be part of this Fundraiser which will support our Church Extensions.
