Our Vision for St James

We believe that at St James God is calling us to grow younger, join together and challenge poverty.

Grow Younger
We want to see younger people in Birkdale discover Jesus and find a home in St James’.

Join Together
We want to join with St Peter’s and St John’s to serve Birkdale together.

Challenge Poverty
We want to love our community by partnering with local people, groups, businesses and organisations to help every person in Birkdale flourish and enjoy life in all its fullness.

If our vision is to be relevant to our community, and to be more so in the future, we need to follow our foundational priorities and values, namely:

  • Warmer through fellowship
  • Deeper through discipleship
  • Stronger through worship
  • Broader through ministry
  • Larger through evangelism
  • God gets the glory for it all
