Arrangements for Baptisms, Banns,Marriages, Holy Unction and Sick Communion by appointment with the Vicar


We are a Church community of welcome and service to all who need us.

We witness to the love that God has for all in Jesus Christ.

We are the Church of England Parish Church for the area within a half mile radius of Elmers End Green. Through the centuries the Church of England has offered spiritual care and sacrements (baptisms, weddings, and funerals) as well as education and social care to all who live within the boundary of a Parish. Many who come to St Jame's Sunday by Sunday or on weekdays, do not live within our parish boundary but make us their spritual home by choice. Church life is about people not buildings!

We invite you to contact us or join us for worship to receive the help and blessing God offers you through His Church.

Midweek Mass

Wednesday 9.30 a.m.

Let us keep a Holy Lent

Midweek Mass and Stations of the Cross is our participation and fellowship with all the others in Christendom who gather in their respective churches to offer this worship, praise and petition to God. The Sunday notice sheet lists Weekday Mass times for the following week.

Look for opportunities to talk about your faith.

Invite others to come and join in worship or the social activities which are an important part of our parish life?

Plan now – how you will participate fully in celebrating Easter by attending Maundy Thursday evening , Good Friday afternoon , The Easter Vigil and /or Easter morning
