The church is open at 10.15am each Sunday for the Eucharist at 11am and closes at 6pm.

The church is open to visitors Monday to Saturday 10am-4pm, and often longer for recitals and other events.


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 accessibility of services and events at St James’s in the church building and online.

Step-free access

There is step-free access from Piccadilly into the courtyard, and from the courtyard into the church. The main body of the church is step-free with a wide central aisle. There are spaces for wheelchairs towards the front of the church.

There is one step to enter the church from the Jermyn Street entrance. The church offices, including the church hall, reception and meeting rooms are not wheelchair accessible.

Redemption Roasters has one step from both the courtyard entrance and Jermyn Street entrance.


Access for deaf or hard of hearing people

There is a loop system in the church and a PA system. The sound quality is best on the ground floor area of the church. The hearing loop works best in the centre of the nave and is a bit weaker elsewhere in the church. Our sound system is old but we do our best with it and are planning improvements.

There are screens in the gallery.




Printed material

There are large-print orders of service available for our Sunday Eucharist and Sanctuary Eucharist on Tuesdays, and we use QR codes for orders of service to be accessed online.


There is a toilet for people with disabilities inside the church on the Jermyn Street side, which is accessible from the main church entrance.






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.

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:
