Mission through the years

Mission, witness and outreach

The giving of charity has been one of the most important social functions of the church since before the advent of the Welfare State. Beyond the needs of the parish itself, St James’s contributed generously to the work of the church by the Home and Foreign Missions and other charities. Much has happened since 1863 and the links below lead to pages describing the historical records of the various types of witness, mission and outreach that St James's has undertaken.
