St James' old church is the former parish church of Stanstead Abbotts in Hertfordshire. When St Andrew's Church was built in the village in the 1880s, St James' became redundant, although it still hosts five services a year including an extremely popular Advent service in December.
Now owned by the Churches Conservation Trust, and managed by the Friends of St James' Church, this delightful building also hosts a number of cultural events, whether musical or theatrical.
Following a hugely successful performance of Sir Gawain and the Green Knight, and Winter Poems by Candlelight, a collection of seasonal poems from many different periods of history, we are now in the early stages of preparing for a performance based on the fourteenth century Alliterative Morte Arthure. Of which more in due course!
