Like every Anglican church all over the world, St James' is a place where human stories, in all their complexity and beauty, are celebrated. But at the centre of our story, is that of the conviction that, in Jesus Christ, God is with us. We believe that the purpose of all life is to worship God and enjoy him forever.
Being Downley Parish Church, we are
here to serve the needs of our community regardless
of whether any resident is a practicing Christian.
This is, of course, in addition to ceremonies that take place
in church such as christenings, baptisms and funerals.
