Parish Profile

The most version of the St James parish profile (Nov 2019) has been added to the website. Not because the Vicar is leaving but to accompany the advert for a Families Minister.

Families Minister Advert

A page was added in late October to advertise the part-time post of Families Minister at St. James. The closing date is 20th December.

Roles & Policies

The revised Health and Safety Policy has been added to the website.

In the process it was discovered a whole section of the website had been lost due to a problem with the software used. This has been reinstated but there may be some pages or documents missing or possibly links still going to old documents which the software is refusing to delete.

A summary of the various co-ordinator roles has been added to the website.

Safeguarding Page Updated

The PCC has adoped a new Safeguarding Policy as provided by the Diocese of Blackburn.  The policy and a link to the national safeguarding handbook are on the Safeguarding page.

Taste & See

Two recent sermons have been added.

Also some details and links to the separate website for the joint Taste and See Mission.

Sermons and Bible Studies

The Sermons page and Bible Studies pages have been updated to reflect the new series this term (for which see the Term Card).


The Term Card for the forthcoming term has been added to the website.

A card showing the Wednesday afternoon Communion services and Bibles studies has also been added.

The Wedding Banns application form has been updated for the 2019 fees.


The 2019 Fees documents have been added and the fees page updated.

Development Photos

A bit overdue - but some photos of the new lobby and toilets have been added to the website. The work was completed in June 2018.


The Bible Study groups in the autumn term (2018) are looking at the letter of Paul to the Philippians. As they are written the notes will be posted on the website.
