Over the approximately 35 years of friendship, St. James has hosted people visiting from our companion parish and diocese. In 2004 the Vicar, the Rev. Peter Yorkstone and Rev. Bentley did a pulpit exchange for 3 weeks and the Bentley family, with 5 others from St. James, traveled to Giggleswick and enjoyed the hospitality of members of St. Alkelda. In 2006, the Rev. Yorkstone came to St. James again and brought 10 people from St. A’s, and we were enriched by the friendships made and continued.
