Online Services

St James’ has a reputation for quality, inspirational and transcendent liturgy which connects us to God and each other.
At St James’ we livestream our worship (rather than pre-record), so that all may take part, together, in that service of worship, instead of just viewing a programme with a religious message.
So, livestreaming enables parishioners and others to take part in worship when in-person worship is impossible to attend (for example, through illness, distance or pandemic restrictions).
As an online participant worshipping with us, you might consider the following:

  • Put your screen in a ‘sacred space’, and light a candle to create the ambiance of a Worship Service;
  • Print the weekly pewsheet, so you can follow all the words and the music;
  • Prayerfully prepare yourself to meet the Lord;
  • Refraining from eating, drinking or other distractions, watch the Service with reverence as you would, ‘in church’ with us all;
  • As the whole act of worship is important, attentively listen to the Word of God proclaimed, as well as the sermon;
  • Pray thoughtfully with the liturgical prayers and the intercessions;
  • You are able to sing along with the hymns;
  • As the Service concludes, give thanks to God for this opportunity to join with us.

While livestreaming will continue, as restrictions are gradually lifted, we look forward to welcoming you, in person, to worship together as the Body of Christ, in St James’ Church.

from Fr Glenn Maytum, Honorary Associate Priest at St James’

Online Services

Livestreaming has provided the parish with a great opportunity to engage more widely with people through worship, concerts, and seminars, but it has also brought a challenge to permanently install suitable equipment so that we can go on doing it in the future. We still need your help to raise around $50,000 to purchase all of the kit required (we are still borrowing some equipment) as well as find enough volunteers to establish a group to run it. Please go to the Media Equipment Appeal Page to find out how to donate to this vital project.
