“Welcome! At the two St James we see ourselves as part of the worldwide church. We are part of the Church of England, in the Diocese of Oxford.
We believe that God makes it possible for everyone to know him as their heavenly Father through his son Jesus Christ, by the power of the Holy Spirit. We seek to proclaim and demonstrate the love and power of Christ to everyone regardless of age, gender, race or culture. We believe that God has called us to serve Him not just locally but for the benefit of our nation. We define our mission and ministry as a church in terms of Bring, Build, Send (see below). We would love you to join us on that journey.”
Martin Williams, Rector
