Parish Groups

The Parish has a number of active groups. Below is a list and description of each group;

St. James' Social Justice Group

Since its beginning in February 2015, the Social Justice Group has considered a number of topical issues including: Modern Slavery, Fairtrade, Homelessness, Refugees and Climate Change. They have organised several events aimed at raising awareness of these issues and receiving information from local charities about possible ways to help.

The group took its inspiration from William Wilberforce who led the anti-slavery trade movement in 18th Century Britain and said:

"You may choose to look the other way but you can never say again that you did not know."

Please check our weekly bulletin for details of our events, including our occasional Fairtrade Stalls.
