A Warm welcome to St James Barkham
Welcome. We are a "family friendly" evangelical church, serving the people of Barkham and the wider area. We welcome those who want to investigate Christianity and those who want to know how to keep on following Jesus.
Our Sunday evening service (also known as "Sundays at 7") starts at 7pm, but tea, coffee and biscuits are served from approximately 6.45pm.
During each service, we look at the Bible together, pray and sing a mixture of old hymns and modern songs.
You can find out more about us and what we do by selecting one of the tabs at the top right of this page.
Some upcoming events :
‘The Cafe Fellowship’
A new opportunity to meet up informally with one another midweek. On the 1st and 3rd Wednesday of the month, anyone who is free would be very welcome to drop in to ‘The Cafe Fellowship’. A chance to meet up, catch up and encourage one another. Meet in the cafe, at Henry Street Garden Centre at 10.30am.
HBC 2014 - OUTRAGEOUS!
Holiday Bible Club 2014 is running from Monday 28 July – Friday 01 August. Our theme this year is ‘Outrageous,’ based on Jesus’ parable of the prodigal son in Luke 15. Recruitment is now officially open! This year Barkham are particularly responsible for 5-6’s, and we are also co-leading Under 5’s with Arborfield .
Barkham Church Away Day 2014 - Who Am I?
Sunday 5 October, 10:00-5.15 Our Away Day is becoming a regular annual feature of our church calendar, and something many of us really look forward to. Whether or not you have been before, please join us for this great day of fellowship, fun and food (both physical and spiritual) for all the church family.
A full children’s programme is provided. We will again be at Crosfields School and Julian and David will be helping us to understand from the Bible more of who we are as Christians in God's world.
Even if you are very new to Barkham or are not sure yet whether you want to make Barkham your church, we'd love you to join us for this day so that you can get to know us better, and what we are about.
