Welcome to St James the Great, Silsoe
Our Church seeks to live out its vision of
Growing as a beacon of Christ’s light in our communities
Following the retirement of our Vicar Rev. Dave Bell in August
we are currently in an interregnum.
Following the advertisement in the Church Times no applications
have been received by the closing date.
The Archdeacon is meeting the Churchwardens later in February.
In the meantime we are maintaining a full schedule of services and
all are very welcome to worship with us.
We continue to operates via our set of values, which are
Welcome – Prayer – Community – Worship – Friendship – Christ centred
A key to the achievement of our vision is the creation of a welcoming atmosphere to support worship and community spirit. The welcoming atmosphere or culture of a church is often referred to and is a key to building and retaining disciples and something our Church is seeking to grow and develop. Being made to feel part of the family, during coffee times and chats, is crucial and we serve and share refreshments after every service. In addition the Church provides a range of services to meet the worship needs of individuals as well as encouraging active involvement by children.
Our Church is a vibrant, growing community and we hope that you will find much to interest you in the variety of services, as well as the many social and community events organised by the Friends of Silsoe Church or by the Parochial Church Council. These can be found by clicking the “forthcoming events” tab on the right.
We look forward to welcoming you to our Church.
The development and growth of our Church is guided by our Mission Action Plan (MAP) which is reviewed regularly and can be consulted here
