I’m New Here

What do you need to know?

Firstly, ‘new to church’ is not new to us. We welcome new people almost every week to church, and hope that when you arrive you will feel instantly at home. After all, this is your church as much as it is anyone else’s.

Relax, enjoy, make yourself known to one of the people leading the service.

Planning Your Visit

We are blessed to have different styles of church services,  click here to consider which would suit you best.

By God’s grace, we are a larger church, and sometimes new comers can feel lost, so here are three top tips:

  1. There are people who wear lilac coloured name badges, there job is to make you feel welcome. Ask them anything, they’d be thrilled to meet you. Please introduce yourself to anyone who leads the services, or preaches the sermon, they will always be happy to speak to you, just say ‘I’m new’.
  2. Every person in our church was new one week. We remember what it was like, so don’t panic, just relax. Join in if you want, sit and watch if you want, nobody will be looking at you.
  3. We have a huge amount of different activities running throughout the week.  Search around this website to get a glimpse of all that goes on. Our church office is here for you if you have any questions.

We love to welcome newcomers to the two St James and we hope you will feel really at home with us very quickly.  Check out our weekly news service sheet as each term we have a special Newcomers’ Lunch to make sure you are feeling connected with the church.
