The Church-  The present Grade I Listed building was built c. 1400 and seats about 250 people. It is situated in the centre of the village and is in good repair although regular attention is needed to the fabric. The church enjoys a magnificent refurbished organ – The "William Jones Organ" which is regularly played by a voluntary organist for the enhancement of our services.

Organisations and Home Groups – There are regular Lent groups held each year as well as a regular bible study group. Other groups include Bell Ringers, Flower Arrangers, Cleaners, Churchyard Working Party and an expanded choir for Christmas. 

Relationship with Other Churches/Faiths at Home and Overseas - St James is now the only worshiping community in the village.  The PCC envisages there is an opportunity to provide spiritual support to other denominations.  The Parish actively supports Christian Aid and other church charities including the Suffolk link diocese of Kagera in Tanzania.

Parish Strengths -

  • A "prayer" based church – with active participation in church services eg lesson reading, leading of prayers, and distribution of the sacraments Strong Links With The Community - there is a good interaction between church and community A welcoming and broadminded church - especially to visitors and new residents. We support the deanery and the diocese by participating in their events and our commitment to our Parish Share. Our Buildings are in excellent state of repair.

St James' is part of the Benefice of Stoke-by-Nayland with Leavenheath and Polstead, and Nayland with Wissington; part of the Hadleigh Deanery.
