St James Church Birkdale

A place to belong

Welcome to Our Church

January 2021:
Following the introduction of a third national lockdown we have made the difficult decision to suspend Sunday worship services in church with immediate effect. We regret having to make the decision but after careful consideration and prayer we believe it is in the best interests of everyone.  

WorshipSheetJan24The worship material will still be available online each week and will continue to be distributed by email to those on the mailing list. It is also intended to continue running the weekly Zoom prayer meetings. 

The situation will be reviewed on a weekly basis and we will endeavour to keep you updated through our daily email and on this website.
