Did you wonder why the Bells were ringing on Saturday afternoon?

The St James' Church Bell Ringers were following the age-old tradition of ringing for a wedding, joining thousands across the country celebrating THAT wedding.

To find out more about becoming a bell ringer, full training given visit our Bell Ringers page

On Saturday 8th September the church will be open for our gift day, please follow the Stewardship link to find out more:


Please Donate, thanks you're awesom


This will be followed by a barbecue, a sign up sheet is at the back of church


We would like to thank everyone who either helped to make this day the such a success by providing refreshments or being in the church to talk to the many people who visited our wonderful church, some for the first time in their lives. As a Parish Church we do not get any financial support from the Church of England or from the Government, in fact we have to pay the Diocese of Coventry our share (The Parish Share) to enable us to have a Vicar to minister in the Village of Bulkington. Along with  this Parish Share we also have our running costs and it doesn't take much imagination to realise how much it takes to run a building such as St James Church.

The Gift Day, as of this morning (Sunday 9th September) raised a fantastic £12,200, this is not the final figure as we know there is still some money to count.

It is also not too late to make a contribution and if you would llike to do so please contact the This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

We would like to thank everybody who has donated, without YOUR help this would not have been achieved.

Final Figure: £12,600.00

The Parocial Church Council is delighted and appreciates the wonderful support from parishioners and the wider community
