Can I hold my Civil Partnership/get my CP blessed at St James's?
Civil Partnerships may be registered only in civil register offices. And, as you may know, the churches remain officially reluctant to celebrate them in churches. If you are a worshipping member of our community and wish to discuss this, contact any of the clergy. See contacts page
If I want a friendly, non-proselytising conversation about the Christian
faith, is that possible?
Yes. Contact any of the clergy directly, either to speak with them or to be put in touch with someone who seems the best fit for your needs. If you are far from London or housebound a telephone call, email exchange or Skype conversation may be possible.
