St James is an Inclusive Church welcoming all regardless of age, gender, background, ethnicity, disability or sexuality and a registered Visible Community with OneBodyOneFaith We are particularly well known as the home to The Sherriff Centre, an innovative initiative that gives a home to the local Main Branch Post Office, Cafe, shop and Childrne's play centre called Hullabaloo.
Open every day from 8am-6pm St James is at the heart of the local community welcoming 3,500 people a week through our doors, many of them young families and most with no connection to the Church. We run a debt advice service, host work for older residents and are heavily involved wiiht the work of the St Laurence Larder, our local Soup Kitchen and Food Bank.
We are also well known for our support for LGBTQIA people and are the home of OPEN TABLE LONDON - a LGBTIQIA congregation that is a pastoral and mission congregation led by and run for LGBTQIA people. OPEN TABLE LONDON meets on the third Sunday of every month at 6.30pm with a service at 7.00pm
Our Mission Statement is 'Offering God's love to all' and we really do try to do that
Our congregation is small - around 50 people, and most in their 30's and 40's. We have a smattering of young families. We worship in a relaxed style whislt trying to presever our Anglican and Catholic heritage - which basially means we are Eucharistic, use incense, say the Hail Mary and some of us sit on the cafe sofas during the Mass. Being a small congregation with the seating close to the altar there is an intimacy to our worship that is lacking in many places and which we try to cultivate
We enjoy regular lunches after Sunday Mass. We seek to be open and welcoming and to communicate both why we worship, why we worship as we do and how our lives are enhanced and strengthened by prayer and by fellowship.
We invite you to join us in celebrating the love of God active in this community.
