I'm new here...
Welcome to St James's! We are an active Christian church in London's West End, just a few moments walk from Piccadilly Circus. Please take a good look around our site to find out something about us.
We'll be really pleased to see you at any of our services or events.
We really should be better at welcoming visitors and new people than we often are. We do try. Please consider introducing yourself to any of the priests on duty that day, and, of course, to anyone else. In short, if you want to know more, please ask.
Whilst you are visiting our site a good place to start is here, where we briefly describe ourselves and our understanding of the Christian Gospel. You'll find more about the Christian life in these pages. Details of some staff and office holders can be found here. We are a rather diverse crowd, and that is reflected in the range of groups we have. Most of them are listed here.
We're delighted you are with us (or thinking of coming along). We hope it may be for a good long time, but we know that some people find it helpful to journey with us only for a while, as part of a wider exploration. We're just glad to have you with us for as long as that turns out to be.
If you are finding it difficult to find your footing or discover what's going on do please get in touch with any of the clergy (Lucy, Ivan, Lindsay or Hugh - see here). We'll be very glad to hear from you. So will the Churchwardens and any member of the PCC.
You will find cards around the church headed 'Welcome to St James's'. Fill in one of these if you’d like to join our mailing list. It also means you will be contacted about events aimed at recent joiners.
Want to talk about ways of getting more involved?
We have various ways in which people take on particular roles. These include:
