Saint James’ Church in Quedgeley covers both Kingsway and Quedgeley, it is seeking to broaden its base by opening a parish office in the Kingsway Community Centre.

The new parish office will open its doors on Saturday, January 5, 2019, for a couple of hours.

Residents are invited to go along between the hours of 9.30am -11.30am for cake and a cuppa and meet the St James’ team.

To begin with the office will be open on a Saturday of each week from 11am-11.45am for anyone wishing to plan a wedding, baptism or just interested in finding out more about Saint James’.

Canon John Ward Rector and Parish Priest said: "The numbers of baptisms and general enquiries from Kingsway have been growing and I am keen that we have a presence in the area. The office will be open for an hour each week. It is a start and something for us to build on. In the longer term I would like to see services and events being held in the area as we extend our mission into Kingsway".
