St James the Deacon Parish Church, Acomb Moor

St James the Deacon, Acomb Moor is part of the Diocese of York in the Church of England. It is the Anglican Parish Church for Woodthorpe, Acomb Park and Foxwood, along with parts of Dringhouses West and Acomb within the City of York.

We are a friendly and community-oriented church, with good links with local schools and organisations. Please feel free to join us for any of our services and events - all are welcome!

We are the only church dedicated to James the Deacon, who was an Italian missionary sent to England by Pope Gregory the Great as a companion of St Paulinus, and who eventually came to Yorkshire and Northumbria in the seventh century. His life and witness is an inspiration to us today as we seek to share the good news of God’s love for all in our parish community.
