 The Church in Wales has reluctantly ordered all churches to be locked from now. St. James will comply with this. 

Despite the building being locked  – CHURCH is NOT!

In the current circumstances the normal manner of worship and space for quiet cannot be managed. However, set out below are suggestions as to alternatives you might like to consider.

Pastoral Care: In these anxious and worrying times if you need to talk to someone, both Andrew and Gaynor are available at the end of a telephone, Please use the contact details set out above. Both Church Wardens are available to help if necessary – again please use the contact details above.

Alternative Services: The Church in Wales, has a website –  with the Diocese having their own website      As on all these websites, The Church in Wales, and the Diocese have placed prayers and services which can be downloaded and used by people in their own homes. Both websites, as with many others, have virtual services which try to give you the feeling you are part of the congregation. If you have trouble with one of the links and cannot find it please phone one of the Wardens and they will try and help.                                                                                              Rev.
