Welcome to Saint James!

Our Church Family

We are a church family of ordinary people brought together by the extraordinary good news of Jesus Christ. Our congregations are made up of people from a variety of backgrounds, with all the usual struggles that people face. Nobody has it all sorted. Everyone is welcome!

We meet in two locations in Gerrards Cross and Fulmer to hear the life changing message of Jesus, as revealed to us in the Bible. Loved, forgiven and empowered by His Spirit we are passionate about sharing this good news with everyone. If you’re new here, we hope you’ll find a very warm welcome.

Our Vision

Our vision is to see every life transformed. Through Jesus. For God’s glory. For that to happen we are committed to reaching our communities, growing disciples, and resourcing the kingdom.

We’d love to share more of that vision as you settle in here!

Our Leadership

All our ministries and congregations are overseen by the Leadership Team and Parochial Church Council (PCC). The Leadership Team works closely with the Rector and Staff Team and functions as the standing committee of the PCC, with overall responsibility for the development and implementation of our vision and strategy. At present, the Leadership Team is made up of the Rector and Church Wardens (Andrew Bell, Francesca Hall-Drinkwater, Wendy Shingleton) together with David Steel (Treasurer) and Jane Sheldon.
