Church and Coronavirus

The PCC met in February and decided that in line with government guidelines we would start having drinks after the service once more.  We know that some people value this time to socialise and have all missed this.  We are still encouraging people to be sensible about what they do and if people still wish to wear masks and maintain social distancing, we will respect that choice.

Church News


 

Our Rector, Steve Short, has been having treatment for cancer and has been out of action for several months.  We are delighted to hear that the treatment has been successful, and that the Diocese will now be managing a gradual return to work for him.  We have all been praying for him and his family and it will be good to have him ministering among us again.  In the mean while enquiries can be made to the Church Warden, Gary Margerrison, or the PCC Secretary, Canon David Edwards.  You will find details under ‘Who to contact at the church.’


 

If you happen to visit Smisby at the moment you will see that there is scaffolding around the east end of the church and that inside, we have a large wooden screen behind the high altar.  Work is being carried out on the east window to replace decayed stone and re-lead the windows.

 


 

 

 

The Fallen from Smisby

Thanks to more research by Garry Margerrison we now have finally identified the details for all of the fallen that we remember at Smisby. We now have not just their rank and service numbers but where they died and where they are buried including those from WW2 on who we previously had no information.

St James' Church

WELCOME TO SMISBY ST. JAMES

 

Hello and welcome to the web pages for our ancient village church.

 

St. James Church stands on a hill above the village and has been a place of Christian worship for more than 900 years. 

 

There are four churches in the group we belong to – Melbourne, Smisby, Stanton by Bridge and Ticknall.

 

Our Rector is the Revd. Steve Short who leads a ministry team of Clergy and Readers.
