    GOOD NEWS!  for Sunday services

    Services on Sundays have now resumed and are not affected by the Government's latest announcement about meeting in a maximum of 6.  We continue on a reduced timetable and following guidelines to ensure that everyone can worship safely. Please note the latest ruling:

    Face coverings are required by law to be worn in places of worship.

    There are valid exemptions for some not to wear a face covering in these settings. In particular, those leading services and those who assist them (for instance by reading, preaching, or leading prayer) do not always need to wear a face covering, although one should be worn especially if physical distancing cannot be maintained. This exemption does not apply to worshippers, who should wear face coverings.

    Please see the calendar for details of where the services are being held.  If you are planning to attend, please let us know by emailing ewelmeparishoffice@gmail.com or leaving a message on the Parish Office number 549280.

    We hope to live stream most of the services at St James for those who can't get to church.  Joining details are in the WEEKLY NEWSLETTER which can be found here 

    For those who would like to use a simple At Home Service, rather than joining via Zoom, that can be found here and used alongside the weekly newsletter.

    Please be aware that Junior Church at Home has stopped for the time being.  We are very grateful to Diane for running it every week from home.  She's having a well-earned rest!
