The parish of Scarborough: St James with Holy Trinity 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. The Diocese of York’s safeguarding pages contain vital links and information including contacts for the Diocesan Safeguarding Advisor (DSA) who advise our PSOs. 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.
St. James is a friendly congregation of an open evangelical persuasion. Worship is varied, recognisably Anglican, warm and informal. Lay participation is high (meaning it's not always the vicar or another ordained person leading the service or social activity) and there is a faith and fellowship group on a Monday morning in the Upper Room of the Church Hall/Arts Centre.
St. James is keen to reach out and be a servant to the surrounding community, and this is expressed particularly through our Community Arts Centre project. We can also offer 4 spaces to hire for various activities.
In the 'Undercroft' we have a multi-functional workshop including a kiln and a gallery which are available for exhibitions.
The church building itself is a rare example of a Paley and Austin design east of the Pennines. The stained glass by Shrigley and Hunt includes some excellent pieces.
For enquiries about the use of the halls etc., please contact Jan Brittain: [email protected]
