About Us

The Parish Church of St James descends from a broad catholic tradition with vestments and Reservation. It is a diverse and growing parish with a congregation that sees itself as having an outreach ministry accepting of all whatever the creed, class or racial origin. St James with Good News Asian Church is one of the most dynamic and culturally varied parishes in the Church of England. 

Currently the priest in charge is Father Douglas Machiridza who is based at the neighbouring parish of St. Andrews, while day to day control is with Father Wayne Hamilton who is a part-time self supporting minister.
