St James Church has links with a wide range of mission partners, both locally and further afield. You can be involved on many levels: taking an interest and praying; supporting financially; or even joining the organisation and serving directly.

Chard WATCH reaches out and engages with isolated adults needing support.  

We give members an elevated sense of confidence and empowerment by enabling them to take their own positive steps. Change comes from within and we help people fulfil their potential through workshops and activities like: art, reading, drama, personal awareness courses, IT, and most importantly peer relationships.

Founded in 2010 by peer members, we have built the project around our lived experience to help reach out and engage with other isolated and lonely people in the community. Members say that WATCH improves their confidence, makes them feel empowered, has introduced them to new friends and enabled them to take their own positive steps. 

People that join us can expect to form new connections and feel a greater sense of belonging in their community.
