Welcome to the website of Saint James, Pakenham.

Tuesday 24th March 2020 

Dear friends and visitors: 

As you will be aware by now, the COVID-19 coronavirus has developed significantly in our nation and our community.  Churches (including St James’ Pakenham) and places of worship have been put into shutdown for the time being.  Our Easter public worship services are also suspended until further notice. We are not conducting public worship services, or face-to-face meetings or activities, in order to reduce the possible risk of spreading infection.  We are not able to provide for things like weddings or baptisms, and funerals have strict social distancing measures and limited to less than 20 people, and we can not provide morning tea or refreshments (due to health risk).  We apologise for these inconveniences, but we are doing all we can to abide with Government health regulations now in place. 

We are still conducting things like Bible studies and prayer groups, but using online formats instead. 

Please connect and communicate with us via email: This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. or call the vicar (senior Minister), Matt Scheffer: 0411 121 064 or connect with us through our Facebook page which has regular updates: “St James Anglican church Pakenham”. At this time, we’re praying for everyone in our community. “God is our strength and refuge, a very present help in time of trouble” (Ps. 46:1). 

Thank you

Matt Scheffer
