What we do

St James’s hosts inclusive services and a creative programme.
We seek to be a welcoming space for people to reflect, create and debate.

Spiritual Life

St James’s is a place to explore, reflect, pray, and support all who are in need. We are a Church of England parish in the Anglican Communion. This is a place for everyone who’s wondering about life’s big questions and striving for a better world.

Earth & social justice

We try to put our faith into action by educating ourselves and speaking out on issues of injustice, especially concerning refugees, asylum, earth and racial justice, and LGBTQ+ issues.

Creative programme

We host a year-round creative programme encompassing music, visual art and spoken word, drawing on St James’s rich cultural history including artists, writers and musicians Mary Beale, Mary Delany, William Blake, Ottobah Cugoano and Leopold Stokowski.

St James’s is not just a building, it’s an idea and an invitation. The idea is that creativity is in itself a language of the human spirit.
