The Church of St James is a
Grade 2* listed building which has recently been re-ordered
to allow its use by the community for non-secular purposes
as well as the liturgical needs of the parish.
The excavations during the
re-ordering work revealed the remains of a possible 7th
Century church, and the embanked church yard and the “stowe”
place name, which suggest a pre-Saxon holy place, reinforces
The active community group
make full use of the church, which is the only public
building in the Parish, and welcomes all in the community
and visitors to their activities.
Everyone is very welcome to the church, be it for services
or non-secular activities and can be assured that they can
participate safely. Safeguarding is of primary importance to
us and the church has a safeguarding policy and officer.
Apart from the regular
services shown above we hold Evensong every quarter.
The church is always open
for visitors between the hours of 9.00am and 4.00pm every
