The Pastoral committee reflects the ethos of our church ie to be ‘a Christ-centred church caring for the community’. Our particular role in this is to offer care and support to those who are in need both within the church congregation and in the Parish. This is usually done in practical ways by arranging visits, taking home communion and praying if requested. We also work to create a welcoming atmosphere to anyone who enters the church building. If you feel we can help you in any way, please contact our church office (stjamesmango@gmail.com or 0117 9561016). Our Administrator will then ask an appropriate person to get in touch with you.
