Electoral Roll

The 2013 Annual Parochial Church Meeting (APCM) is on Sunday, 28 April at 11.45 am (following the 10.30 am service).

Every six years, Church Representation Rules determine that an existing Church Electoral Roll must be scrapped and a new Roll prepared in readiness for the APCM. This is such a year.

Therefore everyone who wishes to be on the Church Electoral Roll must complete a new application form. You must be on the Electoral Roll to be elected as a Churchwarden or Sidesman or wish to stand for election to the Parochial Church Council. Ideally, everyone connected with St James should be on the Church Electoral Roll.

If you would like your name on the Roll then please download the application form, complete, and place it in the box provided at the back of the church, or send to the church office.

In order to be eligible to vote at the APCM your form must be returned by Easter Day.

Keeping Holy Week

Compline is sung on Monday at 19.30. On Maundy Thursday, there is the usual morning service of Holy Communion and the Liturgy of the Last Supper is commemorated in the evening at 19.30. The congregation is encouraged to remain for part or all of the Vigil that follows until 22.00 - 'Could ye not watch with me one brief hour?'

On Good Friday, everyone is encouraged to be present in the City for 'Christ in the Centre', starting from St Peter's Square, Highcross Centre at 10.00 am. For those who wish to come from that to the Hour before the Cross at St James the Greater, a frugal lunch of soup, cheese and bread is to be provided from 13.00 - please sign the list at the back of the Church before 11.00 am on Maundy Thursday.

The ancient night service of Tenebrae (darkness) at 19.30 is especially recommended to those who have never experienced it.

The Easter Eve Vigil is a wonderful anticipation of the dawning of Easter Day, with the blessing of the Pascal Candle from the New Fire in a darkened church - hence the late start at 20.30 - and listening by candlelight to the story of God's saving work from the beginning until the resurrection of Christ. The service lasts an hour and deserves strong support as the first service of Easter.

Easter Day begins with a said service of Holy Communion according to the Book of Common Prayer at 07.00, followed by a Sung Eucharist at 08.30, with breakfast for the choir members, who stay on to sing for All Age Worship at 10.45. A shortened said service of Holy Communion follows at noon. The day culminates in a glorious Festal Evensong at 18.30.
