Church of England Diocese of Coventry Southam

About Us


St James Church is the Church of England parish church of the town of Southam, situated eight miles to the east of Royal Leamington Spa in Warwickshire. This friendly church has a variety of Sunday services and various weekday meetings and groups as well as a midweek Communion service. You are very welcome to come and visit. We aim to reach our community with the gospel of Jesus Christ by being continuously renewed by the power of the Holy Spirit. We invite you not only to explore our website/Facebook/Instagram, but also to come and meet us! HOWEVER.....

Keeping our members, minister, leaders, volunteers, friends and users of the Church safe and well is essential if we’re going to stop the spread of Covid-19. Therefore, this building is closed for services and gatherings (except funerals). It is open for prayer for individuals or individual households. (See contact details below)

But the Church is still open.......We are on websites, Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Zoom, YouTube, Facetime, WhatsApp, through PDFs, emails, and by good old fashioned phone calls to name a few!

We continue to worship God, to care for each other and our community.

Join in for worship each week on YouTube...just search and subscribe to ‘St James Church, Southam’ or contact Rev Vikki Bisiker for a paper copy of each week’s service.

Stay at home. Protect the NHS. Save lives.

God is with us in these difficult times 🙏🏻

Services within the church building are currently not going ahead. Please do follow and subscribe to St James Church Southam YouTube channel for online services. Thank you :) 🙏🏻

Every Thursday at 10am we hold a relaxed and friendly Holy Communion service.

Every Sunday there is a 10am service with a children's group and on the 1st and 3rd Sunday we celebrate Holy Communion together at this service. On the 2nd and 4th Sundays we also hold an 8am BCP Holy Communion in modern language and a 6:30pm Evening Worship in a traditional style. 

Over the next few months we will all be looking together what makes a healthy church so it’s an ideal time to come and join in and meet the community of St James and have a voice in the future of St James.

Growing Greener:

A group that learns together and shares ideas and information about how we can change our lifestyle habits that cause harm to the environment. Most of the sharing is via social media...Growing Greener @ St James Facebook group or growinggreenerstjames on Instagram or the good old fashioned way of articles in the church bulletin or conversations over a coffee! We’d love to work with communities, businesses, schools, and individuals so that together we make a difference. So feel free to post helpful articles and links, ask questions, and share ideas of how we can grow greener together.
