11am - Active Church for Everyone

Our 11am service is more relaxed and informal. Alongside bible readings and songs there is a chance to talk to each other and express and develop your faith through creative and practical activities and prayers. The service is suitable for all ages and is especially accessible for those new to church. Services last approx 45 - 60 mins. Come along early at 10.30am for refreshments before the service.

Occassionally both congregations join together for joint services at 10.30am

The next All Together services are:

  • Sunday 19th March 10.30am- Mothering Sunday with Scout Parade
  • Sunday 9th April 10.30am- Easter Day

On Sunday 26th March there will be no ACE service at 11am so that people can attend Cannon J John at the Parr Hall. If you don't have a ticket you are invited to St Mary's, Great Sankey at 11am to watch a live stream of the event.

Home Group

A home group meets on Thursday evenings in the home of Ruth and Paul at 7.30pm. We are pausing during Lent as Rebecca is leading meditations in church on Thursday evenings, but from 20th April we will be following an 8 week course on prayer. Everyone is welcome to meet for a time of worship, fellowship and learning.

Contact us info@stjameschurch.info if you would like to come along.
