"Our website, a treasury of facts and photos, introduces you to our church family. For over 150 years the people of St James's have served the local community, marked the key moments in people’s lives, and learned together how to follow Jesus. We hope you find the information you are looking for here." Revd Derek Winterburn

After the St James's Day Parish Communion on 25th July 2000, Bishop Michael of Kensington officially launched St James's Church website created by a member of the congregation. Gradually over the following years various changes and improvements were made making it an integral part of St James's outreach to the local community and beyond by being informative, instructive and educational.
The website aims to serve the needs of the congregation by providing up-to-date details of services and other events. It might be the first point of contact for people in the local community providing an ideal way to find out about the church and the Christian faith, anonymously. You may be new to the area, looking for a change or something new or perhaps just visiting. Whatever the reason, we would love to meet you and welcome you into our church. The New Here page describes what goes on inside our church, what to expect when visiting and hopefully encourages people to feel secure enough to take the next step.
