As you may have heard the Church of England have advised all worship should be suspended until further notice.

We will be following this advice, and as such there will be no public services – this includes 8am and 10:30am Sunday Services, all upcoming Messy Church events and Mango Jams.

This is a worrying time for us all, and we don’t want anyone feeling alone or without support. You can contact us for prayer, for practical support or a friendly phone call. We are currently assessing what else we can deliver to our local community in terms of support, both spiritually and physically. Details will be shared as soon as possible.

We will still be producing our weekly newsletter, if you’d like to receive this via email please contact the parish office on stjamesmango@gmail.com or message the page. Our praying community is always accepting requests.

As you are all aware, this is a financially delicate time for our church, we would be grateful if anyone who gives donations to the church or who would be willing to donate, consider switching to cashless methods, such as standing order or via virgin giving: https://uk.virginmoneygiving.com/charity-web/charity/finalCharityHomepage.action?uniqueVmgCharityUrl=StJamesChurchMangotsfield

The Church of England have produced some resources you may find helpful at this time. Please see the following links.

We wish every blessing on you and your families, please take care of yourselves and those around you.
