RECTOR'S EASTER MESSAGE

My brothers and sisters in the Risen Christ, Christ is risen! He is risen indeed!

As we celebrate this glorious season of Easter, we all have so very much to be thankful for: spring is coming; our Church is a wonderful place to gather and celebrate our Faith Family's presence; and we have been given, by the grace of God, the incredible gift of new life in Christ. Please join me in taking time as you read this letter to offer a prayer of sincere thanksgiving to God for the generosity of life and love shared so freely with us.

AN AFFIRMING PARISH ?

On Mondays from 24 March until 28 April at 7 pm, we will gather in the Church to study, pray, discuss and share our thoughts, feelings, understandings and whatever else regarding the question "Will St. James become an Affirming Parish?"

 

An Affirming Parish is a church which has decided, as a congregation, that they are open and welcome to offering a Liturgy of Blessing to a couple who have already been civilly married in a same-gender union.

 

Following our Monday evenings of discussion, prayer and discernment, we will gather for a Congregational Meeting on Sunday, 04 May, following the 2nd service for our decision-making process.

 

The Rector strongly encourages the entire congregation to participate in these Monday evening sessions. Some resources you may wish to take a look at are the following books, which can be borrowed from Revd Rachael.  They are located on the table in the Narthex
