"For just as each of us has one body with many members, and these members do not all have the same function, so in Christ we, though many, form one body, and each member belongs to all the others." – Romans 12: 4-5

Following the retirement of our previous Rector and his wife, Rob and Marilyn Thomas we have now appointed a new Rector, Jake Eggertsen. Jake and his family, wife Nicola and their three young daughters will move to Trowbridge in the summer prior to his licensing to the benefice in a service in St James on the afternoon of Sunday 11 September which will be led by the new Bishop of Salisbury, Rt Rev Stephen Lake.

Do pray for God’s protection over Jake and his family in the coming months as they prepare to leave their parish where they are much loved and as we get ready to welcome them.

Below are some of the friendly faces that you might see when you visit St James' Church.
