Fr Robert Thompson


St Mary’s and St James’ are Inclusive congregations and we are committed to living our faith in the unconditional love of God in Jesus Christ. We have a strong commitment to the service of our local communities as an expression of our faith. Our worship is in the liberal Catholic tradition; with St James’ being ‘higher’ than St Mary’s and in both Churches we aim to provide accessible and enjoyable worship with good quality liturgy and music including a wider range of old and new hymns and songs.


We have a vacancy for an experienced Children, Younger People and Families Worker. For a full job description and details of how to apply please click here.
