Project Aurora

We have some great news!  We have found a more affordable way to move forward with the project and the work will be divided into phases.  The PCC have authorised the first phase to be carried out early in the new year.  LED lamps will be fitted into the original high-level light fittings to improve the lighting in the church.  Further phases will include additional lighting particularly in the chancel, a new AV system and high-level decoration of the church.   Further fundraising will still be needed but the works are likely to cost less than half what we originally thought. Thank you so much to everyone for your continued support and fundraising efforts.

Easy Fundraising

Thank you all for your continued support for Project Aurora through online shopping through the EasyFundraising online shopping portal. So far we have raised over £260 by people just making their online purchases using this link https://www.easyfundraising.org.uk/invite/12BKKZ/T9F7GG.

When buying this way, you do not pay any extra for your purchase, but St James’ benefit from the donation that the individual online retailers make to our cause. Be reassured that by shopping this way you will not be inundated with unwanted sales emails or spam, so please do consider using this ‘add on’ when doing your online Christmas or holiday shopping. If you have any concerns or queries about EasyFundraising please just get in touch, thanks, Helen Wiseman 07787 511 625 hwiseman@hotmail.co.uk

The 200 Club

The first draw took place on Friday 19 July and the winners were as follows: 1st Prize Mike O’Brien; 2nd Prize Rita Payne; 3rd Prize Mike O’Brien. Congratulations to the winners next time it could be you!  


Help raise regular funds for Project Aurora and be in with a chance to win a prize each month. Why not support our fundraising by becoming a member of the 200 Club? Monthly contributions will go toward raising funds for Project Aurora, and you will also be entered in a draw to win one of three prizes. Not less than 55% of the monthly payments will go toward Project Aurora, the rest will be paid out in prize money.

Which means:
For each £5 membership at least £2.75 will be added to the fund.
Over a year this will bring in a minimum of £33 per person.
If there are 50 member this would be £1,650 pa.
And 100 members would raise £3,300 p.a.
With full 200 members this would increase to a fantastic £6,600 p.a.
