We meet together at St James Church, Barkham on Sundays at 10am and 7pm, and the Youth Group ("Cave") meets at 5.30pm on Sundays.
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 :
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.
Looking for a good book? Want to grow in your understanding of the Bible or of what it means to be a Christian? Looking for something helpful for your children or for a friend? Click on the '10ofthose' logo and you’ll find two things: First, a list of ten helpful books that we think anyone would benefit from reading; and secondly, three books that fit particularly well with things we are looking at as a church family right now. 10ofthose is an excellent Christian bookseller - so do take a few minutes to browse the rest of their site as well.
