RECOGNITION OF NEW MEMBERS
From time to time,
told in the stories of a congregation, we recall how
new people arrived,
decided to stay,
and enrich the life of that congregation by
their contributions and
Today we celebrate that in the life of this congregation,
another/several people have arrived
and decided to call ‘St James’
their new spiritual home.
Today, we welcome them/her/him
