Church of England Diocese of London St. James Westminster

St James's, Piccadilly


St James’s is a parish church in London’s West End, part of the Church of England and the world wide Anglican Communion. The building is a Christopher Wren design, consecrated in 1684. Our principal gathering as a Christian community is every Sunday at 11.00am for the Eucharist.

We seek to be an inclusive, welcoming and adventurous Christian community, honouring God and one another.


The parish of St James's Piccadilly is committed to the safeguarding of children, young people and adults. We follow the House of Bishops guidance and policies and have our own Parish Safeguarding Officer (PSO) and Children's Champion. The Diocese of London’s safeguarding pages contain vital links and information including contacts for the Diocesan Safeguarding Advisor (DSA) who advises our PSO. If you are concerned that a child or adult has been harmed or may be at risk of harm please contact the DSA. If you have immediate concerns about the safety of someone, please contact the police and your local authority Children or Adults Services.
