Rev James said: “After four years as Vicar of St Andrew’s Clubmoor, I’m delighted to be taking on the role of Executive Director at Together Liverpool.

“It’s vital as we continue to re-emerge from the pandemic that we ensure we are building a generous, just and equal society together.

“Churches, charities, communities and other faith groups play a central role in this and I look forward to supporting and equipping them to make an even bigger different in the work they do.“

James previously served his curacy at St Pauls and St George’s, a city centre resource church in Edinburgh.

At St Andrew’s he has been engaged in extensive social action in the local community, including the church-led pantry, foodbank, recovery meetings and a range of actives focusing on reducing social isolation and improving wellbeing.

He is also a trustee of St Andrew’s Community Network which works across the city to facilitate, in particular, debt advice, food banks and pantries.

James and his wife Alice are foster carers and are committed to providing a safe home for children who need one. In his spare time James also loves to run, bake bread and drink good coffee.

Canon Ellen added: “We are excited for James to join our dedicated team of social activists committed to making a Bigger Difference in particular enhancing the capacity of the Churches’ mission and neighbourliness in our most disadvantaged communities.

“HIs appointment will strengthen our contribution to the strategic aims of the social justice work of the Diocese, while growing the scope and voice of Together Liverpool as an advocate for our communities and those on the margins.

“James will join us in Spring 2022. In the mean time we thank everyone for your prayers for James, his present parish, and family, as they prepare for this transition.”
