Being a reader at St James – and being trained - has been a rewarding and interesting experience  as part of the Ministry Team in a varied and supportive congregation;  I am still learning. Standing in a pulpit and wearing a frock was not something I ever thought I would end up doing!  I think God likes surprises. I get to play a bit of guitar as well.

 All of us in the choir have a delight and joy in singingWe feel that our main role in the church is to enhance the spirituality with our voices.  We sing at every 10 o'clock Sunday service, and spend a few minutes after the service rehearsing for the next week.  If you would like to join us then please just come along and introduce yourself.  You will be made most welcome.
