Christingles are festive celebrations taking place in communities every year. They get their name from the objects lit during the ceremony - oranges decorated with red tape, sweets and a candle.

Whether you're looking to take on your first ever virtual celebration or hold an intimate service at home with family, we have all the information and resources you'll need.

This year, we are also holding our first ever National Christingle Service in partnership with the Church of England. Register your interest now to join in and share the light with the whole country. 

Join our Christingle Event on Saturday 19th December at 16:00

As a new month begins and we continue to return to the Church building for worship, we are also opening up new ways of giving to St James Church - it is now possible to donate online.

St James relies solely on people's generosity and receives no funding from the Church of England or the Government. As you can imagine, the pandemic has had a significant impact on our financial situation - as we continue to worship, look after our building, and play our part in the community, if you are able to give it would make an enormous difference. Thank you!

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
