Thank you!

Shelley – the outgoing Rector writes:
Thank you for all the fellowship, friendship and support over the last ten years as together we in St James the Less have done our best to worship and serve God as best we are able and as we believe we have been called. Thank you for your generosity as Pete and I move on to the next stage of our life in retirement. May we all find the road ahead brings with it new friends along with new depths and strength to our faith and trust in the Lord.Cross

Shelley and Pete having a go at cutting the amazing cake.








Sunday 20th November was Shelley’s final service as Rector of St James the Less.  A wonderful congregation of St James the Less members, family and friends gathered for worship followed by great fellowship and celebrations in the hall.
