St James' was built in 1888 by the sixth Earl Beauchamp of Madresfield as a chapel of ease to Powick church. Set just off the main Upton Road next to Callow End Primary School, it has a brick nave and chancel and features a small louvred bell turret on the roof. It was recently extended to provide a new vestry and kitchen facilities.

Revd Sue Irwin has moved to a new appointment and, during the vacancy period, the Rural Dean, Revd David Nichol will have oversight of the parish. Enquiries can be made by phoning Powick vicarage.

The original windows on the north wall were replaced in 2003 with the stained glass Apostle windows rescued from the now demolished Powick Hospital chapel.

The pews have been replaced by comfortable individual seats which can be moved thus providing a very versatile space.

Hymn books and orders of service are often not needed as words are displayed on a screen from an overhead projector.

A small layby opposite the school next door provides a few parking spaces; but otherwise parking is in the street.

Sunday services are normally held at 9:30 am; either Holy Communion or Sunday Worship. See the Powick magazine or the Guarlford web site for details.
