The vision of building a great church requires teamwork, and our church is built by incredibly gifted and hardworking, staff and volunteers.

We are always looking for people to join the team and be part of this incredible adventure.

AtSt James there are so many opportunities to serve, so if you are passionate about making the details count why not join us on team?

Part of being a healthy and thriving local church family is being actively involved. So please take a minute to look through these opportunities to be part of our incredible volunteer team. You could volunteer on the weekend, weekdays, or at special events by managing systems and processes to help people take their next step toward spiritual growth.

We’re sure you’ll find a place to shine!

Your opportunities start here !

Welcome Team

If you enjoy meeting new people, we’d love your smiling face to greet the local church family as they arrive at our weekend gatherings.


I don’t know if you’ve noticed but at St James we love to drink loads of coffee and get together for food. Hospitality is one of our simplest and greatest gifts but sometimes our small team of volunteers could do with a little HELP, so why not think about it making a brew isn’t that difficult, if you can make one at home you can make one at church !


Let’s think about this for a moment, our kid’s are the church of today but more importantly they’re the church of tomorrow. At the moment we are actively seeking people to be involved in our Kid’s ministry ‘Xite’; it’s Xiting, challenging and great fun so why not have a think about it., or better still have a word with us about how you could be involved.


Worship is the heart of what we do. To worship God is our passion and consequently we want it to be the very best it can be. So if you are passionate about worshiping our almighty God and have a musical talent then come and have a chat with us, because we’d love to hear from you.

General Maintenance and Gardening

At St James we’re blessed with a great building, but having a greatbuilding comes at a price and keeping up with the maintenance of the building and grounds is something that is always there to do. So if thats your forte we’d love to hear from you.


At service times theres a lot to do to ensure that everything works at the right time, so if you have a technical mind and love things to work when they should please have a think about joining this team.

And theres always more

In addition to those things that we’ve mentioned above there’s always the opportunity to do something, so if you’d like to join an existing team or have a thought about something new why not have a chat with Harry in person, via email or on the phone 01274 83-11-09
