St James is a small but growing church situated on the eastern side of Bolton.

We are friendly and welcoming to all people.

Our worship is main stream Anglican using a variety of hymns and common worship liturgy.

At our Morning praise services we are a little more experimental and informal and this service is normally led by one of our various church groups.

We use the NRSV bible and our sermons are normally based on one of the Lectionary readings.
