Social Activities

Aces High Bridge Club

This group meets every 1st, 3rd, and 5th Monday in the Westminster Lounge at 1:00 – 3:30 p.m. for lively games of bridge. All bridge players are welcome. At each meeting, each member pays $2 to covers costs, with the balance helping to cover some of the cost of a Christmas luncheon in December and a Pizza Lunch the first Monday in June. The Club invites Clergy and Staff to these celebrations.

Advent Luncheon and Craft

St. James marks the beginning of Advent with a Fellowship Luncheon after the 10:30 Sunday Service. Delicious food is followed by a craft activity, such as making Advent wreathes for use at home.

Anglican Church Women (A.C.W.)

Three executive members invite volunteers to help prepare funeral luncheons or teas, teas for special events, and the annual Vestry luncheon. They put on bake-sales throughout the year as well and invite parishioners to add to the lovely array of baked goods, preserves, and frozen dinner and luncheon items. The proceeds from the sales go to support our Outreach projects in London and abroad.

Book Club

Our St. James book club has been going strong for many years. The club has a convener who selects the books and leads the group in lively and thoughtful discussion. The club meets at 1:30 on the third Wednesday of the month September to June, in the Westminster Lounge.
