About Us

St. James' Church was consecrated as a place of worship at Christmas time in 1865. We celebrate our 150th anniversary in 2015/2016

The Community Room and Kitchen are both available for use by the community.

St James on Sunday Afternoon

We have a very informal congregation which meets from 4.00pm to 5.30pm on the 2nd, 4th and 5th Sundays on the month at St. James Church. We enjoy actvities, worship and food together!

St James Cafe Church

Cafe Church is a great partnership between St. James' Church and its two church schools. 

We share coffee and tea and soft drinks, plenty of cake and we enjoy hearing from a class in one of our church schools.

St James' Community Room and Kitchen

The congregations at St. James' Church are delighted that they can make available a community room and a commercial standard kitchen for use by the community. The church has been reordered over a number of years to improve facilities and now provides for a variety of different community groups.

3rd Ashton Scouts and 1st Ashton Guides use the building for their regular meetings and are both attached to St. James' Church; the Workers Educational Association (WEA) uses the community room two days a week for art classes and a number of occasional users of the building.
