St James' Church

St Jamess is a parish church in Londons West End, part of the Diocese of London and the world wide Anglican Communion. The building is a Christopher Wren design, consecrated in 1684. Our community (we prefer the term to the more usual congregation) is diverse. We seek to be inclusive, and welcoming of both human experience and human diversity. We take the Bible seriously, and seek to understand it in the light of that same experience and diversity, and of what this age knows and Biblical writers did not, and could not, know. Our community is widely representative of attached and single people, gay and straight, those who have a natural faith and those who struggle with belief. We believe that in the Gospel is to be found a radical welcome, a great and generous invitation to share in the banquet of Gods creation. And also a challenge, to this and all generations.
