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 :
London Men's Convention 2014
The 2014 London Men's Convention will take place on Saturday April 26. Exploring the thrilling theme of Resurrection, we will hear what the Bible has to say about the resurrection of Christ, creation and Christians, drawing out the wonderful implications that transform our daily life. Speakers are Graham Daniels, Vaughan Roberts, Pete Woodcock, Mark Greene and Dan Strange. The venue for LMC 2014 will be Central Hall Westminster and there will be the option to go to an early (10am) or Late (4pm) session. You can pick up a flyer from the back of church today, or find full details at www.christianconventions.org.
We have one life. What is it all about? Run informally over a few evenings, Christianity Explored is a great way for anyone to find out about the Christian faith and ask any question they want. We are starting a new course after Easter. If you would like to join us or simply to find out, drop a line to Julian Bidgood .
South Central Women's Day
This years South Central Women's Day is on Saturday 17th May at St Mary's Church, Maidenhead, 10am-4pm
The talks are on Hosea - The Impossible Bride and the love of God, and as usual there is a good choice of seminars for the afternoon.
I wonder do you notice what we have on our windowsills week by week? Usually we have flowers helping to enhance our worship. We have a small team of flower arrangers and we are looking for some new people to join us. We meet approximately every 3 weeks on a Friday morning. No experience is needed as training can be given.
Large print service sheets
We now produce a couple of large print copies of the service sheet and news sheet. Do bear them in mind if you are bringing a guest who may appreciate this. If you are visiting us and would like a large print copy, please feel welcome to ask when offered a service sheet.
