St James’s Church holds two services on most Sunday mornings: an “in- person” service in the church at 9am, and a virtual service on Zoom at 10.30am.

The in-person service starts at 9am with doors opening at 8:30am to allow for staggered arrival times.  There are some strict guidelines we have to follow to make sure that we are keeping everybody safe whilst in Church, and we do ask that you contact Steve Day, our Administrator, on crosshousebramley@gmail.com or by phone on 07341 552732 to let him know if you wish to attend each week.  This way, we can keep an eye on capacity in the Church in order to keep the required social distance, as well as keeping a record of those attending for any potential Track and Trace requirements.  All records of personal attendance will be deleted after 21 days, assuming no infections have been reported.

Our virtual service on Zoom at 10.30am every Sunday is easy to access on a computer or any other digital device. It is also possible to listen to the service on any phone if you aren’t able to access it on a computer.  In order to sign up for these services, please contact Steve Day, our Administrator, on crosshousebramley@gmail.com or by phone on 07341 552732, and he will gladly provide you with a link to enable you to join us.

The church is also open for private prayer on Wednesdays  between 10am and 3pm and on Sundays following the Church service until 3pm.  Anyone coming into the church needs to observe social distancing and to use hand sanitiser on arriving and leaving; but please do feel free to come in and spend a little while praying and reflecting on God’s goodness.
