Volunteer with us

Join our sociable and supportive community of volunteers and be surrounded by incredible architecture, history, music, art & ideas in the heart of St James’s.

St James’s depends on the skill and dedication of our great volunteers. They help with visitors and behind the scenes, in teams or independently.

We welcome volunteers from any age group, background, of all faiths and none – and offer a wide range of opportunities in and around the church.

Your participation in any of our opportunities will make such a difference and contribute to the local area, London and beyond.

Volunteering with us gives you the opportunity to discover more about St James’s, make new friends, and develop your skills.

All our volunteers play a vital role in delivering our mission and purpose.

Those who join us as volunteers will have a positive approach and ability to communicate with the diverse group of visitors and worshippers who step across our threshold. Applicants must reside within the UK and within a reasonable traveling distance from St James’s Church, Piccadilly.

We are not currently recruiting volunteers at St James’s. For more information about future volunteering opportunities, please email the Associate Rector, The Revd Dr Ayla Lepine (
