Church of England Diocese of Leeds Woodside

St James' Woodside

St James' Woodside is a Church of England church located in Horsforth, NW Leeds. It is a vibrant and family friendly church with a congregation spanning all age groups. The church embraces both modern and traditional styles of worship. Visitors and new members can expect a warm welcome and an informal atmosphere.

Please explore the pages of our website which give information about St James' and what's going on.  

St James' is open for public worship at 09:00 and 10.30 each Sunday.  If you would like to join us, please note the Covid-safe arrangements for worship which you can find here.

If you would like to download a reflection based on the readings for Sunday, you can find it here.

During the coronavirus restrictions when we were unable to gather in person we offered pre-recorded worship on YouTube. Now that we are back in the building we no longer plan to create pre-recorded material regularly, but you can review latest content and archive material here.

Please be assured of our prayers at this time of continued uncertainty.

We are not people of fear:
we are people of courage.
We are not people who protect our own safety:
we are people who protect our neighbours’ safety.
We are not people of greed:
we are people of generosity.
We are your people God,
giving and loving,
wherever we are,
whatever it costs
For as long as it takes
wherever you call us.
