A Welcome from our Minister

Hello and welcome to the St James Road Methodist Church…..known to many simply as SJR !  Whether you are ‘just looking’ or someone who is already a Christian, we offer a welcome to you.

As a church we are glad to welcome people from all backgrounds, cultures and ages. We consist of those who have been coming for many years and those who have recently joined. Together we are SJR.

Central to who we are is the concept of ‘journey’  and as a faith community we want to journey with you whether you have been a Christian for many years, new to the faith or wouldn’t say you have a particular faith but are exploring God and ‘church’ on your journey. 

As followers of Jesus we express the Christian life in many ways. Worship is central and we provide a wide variety of types of worship. Alongside this we offer small groups, prayer meetings, Bible Study, Toddlers, a Supper club, and lots more. All the details are on this website.

You don’t have to be a Christian to engage with our activities but as part of the welcome we hope to share the love of Jesus with you in a sensitive and personal way. Our church vision statement – ‘Love God…Love People’ is at the heart of all we do.

As Minister of the church I am often on the premises so if I can be of help or you need a personal  conversation, please do contact me.

So why not come along and meet with those who already belong to the church but also meet with Jesus who we believe is the best person we can ever meet with!
