About Us

Welcome to the website of the parish church of St James the Great, Leigh on Sea. St James's is a Church of England parish in the Diocese of Chelmsford, under the pastoral care of the Bishop of Richborough. We welcome anyone who wishes to worship with us and to be part of our parish community, whatever their tradition.

We are the parish church on the corner of Elmsleigh Drive and Blenheim Chase and look to provide spiritual and pastoral care for those who live within our parish. We also provide a wider home, care and welcome for those who wish to worship with us from outside the parish. If you want to know whether you live in our parish click the “find us” tab.

At the centre of all we do is the following of Jesus’ command, “do this in remembrance of me”. The Mass, celebrated daily, is at the heart of all we do. The Sacraments of Baptism, Marriage, and the ministry of Funerals form an important part of our parochial life.

Please feel free to contact if you have any enquiries or if we can help in any way.
