Welcome to Saint James!

Our Church Family

We are a church family of ordinary people brought together by the extraordinary good news of Jesus Christ. We come from a variety of backgrounds, with all the usual struggles that people face. None of us has it all sorted. Everyone is welcome!

We meet in two locations in Gerrards Cross and Fulmer to hear the life changing message of Jesus, as revealed to us in the Bible. Loved, forgiven and empowered by His Spirit we are passionate about sharing this good news with everyone. If you’re new here, we hope you’ll find a very warm welcome.

Our Vision

Our vision is to see every life transformed. Through Jesus. For God’s glory. For that to happen we are committed to:

  • Reaching our communities…with the gospel
  • Growing disciples…to maturity
  • Resourcing gospel ministry…to grow God’s kingdom
