St James

St James' Church sits at the heart of the small coastal town of Yarmouth on the Isle of Wight. In the spring and summer months the town welcomes many visitors but still has an active year round community of local residents who value St James' Church and its' role in the local community.

St James' is fortunate in having 2 services, most weeks and all are welcome. See the Service and Events section of this site for further details.

Safeguarding - The parish of Yarmouth: St James 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(s), PSOs.
