Redemption Roasters

St James’s partnered with Redemption Roasters in December 2022 because it’s a great fit for the church’s social justice values. The café’s purpose is to reduce reoffending rates for people who’ve been through the prison system, through its unique coffee business model. The roastery is in a prison, some of the staff in the cafes have been through the prison system, and the delicious coffee is a good way to support positive social transformation here in London and beyond.

Monday–Friday  7.30am–6pm
Saturday–Sunday 9am–6pm


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 step-free access available through 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 2 steps from Jermyn Street entrance. A ramp can be requested from inside the café using a doorbell on the right side of the Jermyn Street café entrance.

The Southwood garden at present has limited access via six steps (without a handrail). Once in the garden, accessible paths and bench seating are available.  Improvements to ensure step-free access are planned as part of The Wren Project.

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:
