Music Matters

St James’ Church Band and All age Worship

We are very lucky to have a small group of instrumentalists in our village and surrounding areas who perform together once a month and lead the music at the All Age Worship service. The next AAW is on Sunday 17th September with the usual band rehearsal at 10am.
