|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 this possibility.
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 day.
