Phil W


Revd. Canon Phil Williams is the Vicar at St James. He was ordained in 1990 and has been at St James since Easter 2002.  He worked in Sheffield as a Curate at Hillsborough, and in 1994 became the Vicar at Lenton Abbey in Nottingham. Phil is married to Jane and they have two children. Phil’s interests include playing football, the guitar, and embarrassing his children.



Nikki Woolley is the Children, Youth & Families Leader here at St James.




Simon Johns is our student Children’s worker here at St James. He is passionate about working alongside Children and ensuring they have a chance to hear and respond to the Gospel. He is currently studying at St Johns College, Nottingham and is working with us on placement until August 2017.


Jane Graham joined St James as our Church Administrator in October 2011.  Previously Jane has spent time at home raising her son and before that worked in Television Production, mainly in comedy.  Apparently working in a Church office is often not that different!   Jane attends Queensberry Baptist Church where she is part of the Youth team.  Jane aims to assist what goes on at St James by providing friendly and efficient administrative support – her motto is ‘there is no task or information that is so complicated that it can’t be achieved or explained by means of a well-constructed grid’!  In her spare time she enjoys reading, gardening and riding her tandem with her husband.


St James Church is also fortunate in having retired but active members of the clergy among the congregation, Revd. John Williams and Revd. John Henson.


Our Lay readers are Danielle Brown and Chris Childs
