The Parish Church of St James descends from a broad catholic tradition with vestments and Reservation. It is a diverse and growing parish with a congregation that sees itself as having an outreach ministry accepting of all whatever the creed, class or racial origin. St James with Good News Asian Church is one of the most dynamic and culturally varied parishes in the Church of England. The population consists of White, Afro-Caribbean, Asian, Vietnamese and Chinese people. The parish is a major centre of Black, Sikh, Hindu and Punjabi Christian life and faith, and, increasingly of Bengali speaking Muslims. Along with responsibility for St James’, the priest of this parish also acts as Pastoral Lead for the Good News Asian Church, a proprietary chapel of wholly Asian membership using Punjabi, Urdu and English in its worship and life. They celebrated their silver jubilee.

Dear All,

Father David has moved to the West Country to take charge of three parishes on the Cornish coast. This means that Handsworth St James is now in interregnum. All enquires regarding baptisms, weddings, funeral and pastoral care at St James should be addressed initially to the PCC secretary, and chair of the interregnum committee, Avril Page via a churchnearyou who will be able to advise you.
