St. James' congregation gives a warm welcome both to those who live in the small village of Tong, and to others in the local area. Sunday worship is at 8 am and 4 pm. All are welcome 

The church building is fascinating - for whilst the present building as it stands dates from 1727, there is still evidence of the Norman church of 1140, and of the medieval additions. Earlier remains of a Saxon church were found beneath the present building at the time of a major restoration in 1980.

St. James is a part of the Parish of Tong and Laisterdyke, which includes  St. Christopher's Church, Holme Wood and St Mary's Church, Laisterdyke.
