St Philip and St James’s church, Grafton Road, Cheltenham, GL50 2DD

On a wing – with a prayer!

John is a former police officer and then mental health chaplain and has been a priest at Pip and Jim’s for nearly 20 years. In embarking on an ambitious and extensive reordering of the church we’re aiming to provide a warm, welcoming, safe and wholly inclusive space that is open to individuals and groups, seven days a week, finding refreshment and friendship regardless of their circumstance.  In essence it will be a community space as well as a place of inclusive worship. For more information please see In support of P and J’s initiative to raise over £170,000 from the efforts of the congregation towards the full project cost of £2.5 million John has agreed, in what he describes  as ‘a complete moment of madness’, to do a wing walk with Aerosuperbactics Wingwalkers on Saturday 15 June 2019. You will be very welcome to witness John’s abject terror! There are sponsorship forms at the back of church (Cheques made payable to St. Philip and St. James PCC or cash to either John or Laura in the parish office) or you can donate online at Thank you – in anticipation.
