Moving to a new city and settling in to Univeristy is one of life's bigger challenges! We believe that finding a local church that you can call home is one of the most important steps as you start university life. 

With this in mind, we’d like to invite you to St James in the City!


Meet the Family

Our 10.30 am and 4pm service is the best opportunity to meet with our wider church family and worship with all ages. We're blessed at St James to have young families and more mature Christians in our congregation. We can learn so much from doing life with people outside of our age-group! Let's make the most of it on Sundays.

What does church look like?

Sunday services at St James take place under canvas in our tent within the old building of St James. No joke!
Each service features live contemporary worship music with a challenging sermon, prayer, bible reading and ministry time. We celebrate Holy Communion together once a month. 


At the end of the service you need not rush off and cook your own tea, as food and drink are provided. Plus, having a bite to eat gives us chance to get to know eachother better!


Student Group

The St James in the City student group meets at St James Church on Monday evenings at 7pm. We share food, worship, Bible study & discussion. There's plenty of opportunity to get to know the group (and God) better! 

Don't worry of you're new to the Christian faith or haven't been a regular church-goer in the past - we welcome you to come as you are, eat some food, ask some questions and make some friends!

The music group meet to rehearse from 6.15pm on Monday nights ready to lead worship from 7pm. Musicians & singers, you are welcome to join us!

Whats best for you?

It's so important that every student is part of an engaging Christian community. So whether it's this midweek St James student group, your university Christian Union or CaféConnect; we simply encourage you to be involved in the group that most benefits your particular journey of faith.


If you would like to meet someone before attending the midweek group - come to our 4pm Sunday service!
