However you are part of the life of St James’s Church, whether that is as a regular member of the congregation, or an online member, or a supporter or a neighbour, I’m writing to thank you for your ongoing involvement as we find our way through this pandemic together. On Sunday 28th February, we held a meeting on Zoom to keep everyone updated about the work that has been done over the Winter, and the plans for Spring and Summer. Our new vision statement is at the head of this letter, and at the heart of this vision are our core values as we emerge from the Covid 19 crisis: Contemplation, Adventure, Courage, Action, Kindness. These values will guide us as we commit to building a more diverse and inclusive community in our city and now, online too.

Rooted in God’s EarthrnVision and values mean nothing without action. And prayer is itself taking action. All of St James’s activity is rooted in our character as a church formed by contemplation and prayer. This is the ‘why’ of what we do, and will always be at the core of who we are and how we want to be in the world.rnrnA Just Societyrn Justice begins with us acknowledging the unjust systems of which we are part. St James’s support of and solidarity with people going through homelessness and in the asylum system has continued throughout the lockdowns. We want to expand this but also be part of challenging the multiple injustices of inequality, discrimination, racism and poverty, especially those injustices perpetuated by the church. We are currently exploring partnerships with social enterprise businesses, as we work to make a greater impact than before, helping people experiencing homelessness transform their prospects and their future. We would like to expand our current support of LGBTQ+ asylum seekers fleeing their home countries because of their sexuality.
