Church of England Diocese of Rochester East Malling

St James the Great, East Malling

St James the Great is a friendly, liberal and inclusive Church that welcomes everyone. We follow the seasonal and sacramental traditions of the Church of England and encourage preaching that is solidly linked to real life experiences. We are proud to be members of the 'Inclusive Church' movement.

We have a strong musical tradition with a well trained, robed choir made up of men, women and young people. The choir is open to anyone who enjoys singing and wants lively and fun musical training. We are also part of the Royal School of Church Music 'Voice for Life' Programme and encourage our choir members to take part. We have a regular band of bell ringers who also train other ringers. Our tower welcomes newcomers, people who just want to have a go at bell ringing and seasoned ringers alike.

The Church is regularly used as a concert venue by our friends at East Malling Singers as well as other groups. 

Our sister Church, where the Vicar is Priest-in-Charge, is Holy Trinity Larkfield, you can find them here Holy Trinity Larkfield
