Occasionally, albeit rarely, adjustments to our service plans are necessary. Thus, these times may undergo very occasional changes.

Use online service sheets to help us reduce single-use printing

As part of our environmental commitments, we are trying to keep our single-use printing to a minimum. Please consider using an online service sheet, which is uploaded to this page a few days in advance of each service. There are QR codes when you arrive at the church so it’s easy to download a service sheet there too. Although we’ll always have some paper copies for people who need them, please use online service sheets if you can. 


St James’s aspires to be a place where all can belong, and where every person’s gifts and identities are welcome and celebrated.

We are working on improving the experience of services and events at St James’s in the church building and the online community.

In the building, we have step-free access from the courtyard, a toilet for disabled people, large-print orders of service for our Sunday Eucharist and Sanctuary Eucharist on Tuesdays, QR codes for orders of service and a hearing loop system.

Online, we broadcast many of our services and concerts on our YouTube channel. Many of our events take place on Zoom throughout the year, including services and courses.

The courtyard and Redemption Roasters café are wheelchair accessible. The rectory and its offices and event spaces, as well as the Southwood Garden, are not wheelchair accessible.

See Visit Us or if you require any further information or assistance about disabilities and accessibility at St James’s, please email Revd Dr Ayla Lepine, the Associate Rector:
