About us

We are an inclusive and affirming congregation, accepting of all. We are a congregation of local folk, who enjoy worshipping together in our beautiful church, situated ‘up the lane’, in Broomhill Road. There is ample parking space by the church and in neighbouring roads.

Our style of worship is relaxed but formal, with a robed choir and organ leading the singing in most of our services. Once a month we have a service focussed more on families where guitars and other instruments are used.

At a typical Sunday morning service there are people of all ages from babies through to the elderly. We have in the church hall.

Members of the congregation regularly take part in the service, including reading scripture and leading the prayers of the people. We have activities available for children during the Sunday morning service and bags of books and toys to help keep young ones entertained if they do not wish to join in our young church activities. We value time together over tea and coffee after our Sunday morning service.

If you have any questions, please speak to a member of the ministry team or any member of the congregation about our services. We welcome enquiries about baptism, confirmation and affirmation of faith, weddings, and officiating at funerals. Our priest is licensed to solemnise same-sex marriages, which can take place in St James the Less.
