Like all churches, St James has its own emphasis and style;

 

We believe that our purpose at St James’ Church is to look for a consistent and enduring relationship with God. Through His grace we seek to enjoy fellowship together and to provide support to one another. By the strength of His Holy Spirit we wish to be witnesses for Christ in our community by His word and by our deeds and our hope is to see others drawn by the Spirit into a living relationship with Jesus Christ.
