We take safeguarding seriously.  For any concerns, complaints or for further information, please contact:

St. James is a friendly congregation of an open evangelical persuasion. Worship is varied, recognisably Anglican, warm and informal. Lay participation is high 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]
