Only a few years ago St James’ Church celebrated 900 years of faithful worship, although only one wall of the Norman building remains intact.
Until within the last decade, St James served a small rural community, but the advent of recent development has seen the exciting prospect of reaching out to the soaring population of around 3000 souls with yet more development, including a major railway station in prospect.
Due to substantial grants from English Heritage and others, together with funds raised by the community, restoration work was completed December 2005. Click to see pictures of restoration work.
Due to the decay of the building and loss of heating and lighting, gains made in growth have been lost. But with the provision of new facilities and the installation of a new heating and lighting system, we plan to re launch St James with a 21st century style.
Please pray for vision, a new heart and encouragement in outreach.
Although few in number, there is a real sense of community and a warm welcome awaits you should you come to worship with us.
Praise The Lord
Due to a recent £315,000 bequest, we are looking towards an exciting time of providing up to date facilities for the Lords work in Norton juxta Kempsey.
