Friends of St James the Great, Thorley

The Friends of St James assist the Parochial Church Council in maintaining and beautifying the Church and Churchyard. They raise funds through membership subscriptions and by organising special events and activities which are enjoyed by the community.

The Friends have their own website at www.friends-stjames.org with details of the activities they organise, and lots of fascinating information about the historic Church and the lives of the people of Thorley in past times.

If you are not already a member, why not join the Friends?  Just email friends@stjamesthorley.church for a simple application form.

Annual Festival of Flowers and Music

Held over the August Bank Holiday Weekend

A hugely popular event that attracts over 1,000 visitors.  We welcome the local community, raise funds and, we hope, reveal something of Jesus.  Why not pop it in your diary now for next year?
