Church of England Diocese of Newcastle Benwell and Scotwood Team

About Us

<span style="font-size: 1rem;">Website:</span>

<span style="font-size: 1rem;">St James' is part of Benwell and Scotswood Team Parish. We are four different churches serving the people of the West End of Newcastle, south of the West Road from Scotswood to Elswick. The other churches in the Team are the Venerable Bede, St John the Baptist in Benwell Village and St Margaret’s Scotswood. </span>

We work together to proclaim the Good News about Jesus and seek to grow in faith and love. We aim to be welcoming and inclusive, taking inspiration from Jesus who calls us as we are to journey with Him.



Sundays at 10am: Communion, Eucharist, Lord's Supper, Mass… whatever you call it, this is the heart of our community life. With hymns, Bible Readings, a sermon, and either Sunday School or a children’s play area with activities. Followed by tea and coffee.

Thursdays at 9.30am: A Book of Common Prayer Eucharist. That’s the traditional Anglican prayer book with beautiful language. Followed by tea and coffee.

8.45am Monday-Wednesday – at The Venerable Bede (West Road, NE4 8AP)
